"I'm very proud of our production team, including acclaimed voiceover actor Harry Chase whose remarkable talent helped make this 60-second radio ad a national winner," said Tom Anderson, managing partner of Optima. "Political messaging on radio and T.V. requires a specific skill set to be effective, from an empowering script to music sound bed to imaging, and Optima Public Relations has met the mark for Senator Lesil McGuire. We hope our design and production creativity translates to Senator McGuire becoming Alaska's next Lt. Governor," added Anderson.
