In a social media post from 2016, Alyse Galvin reached out to her friends on Facebook to get some help finding a job.
One year later, she decided she would be the one to represent Alaska in Congress. Maybe no one found a job for her?
For the past three years, running for office has been Galvin’s job.
Galvin has had many, many, many jobs, according to her strange 30-second TV ad: She has done everything from serving pizza, working the slime line, print shop, coffee stand, daycare, hotel work, office supplies, restaurants, hot dog stand, and scraping ice. She’s kind of done it all.
Can Galvin, age 55, even hold a job? Born in Riverside California, she’s been in the workforce for 25 years, but with all the jobs she lists, it’s a question that has to be asked.
If Galvin wins against Congressman Don Young in November, Galvin would get a two-year job.
Mark Putnum, who is producing Galvin’s and Al Gross’ political ads, is one of the top media-ad guys for the Democratic Party, and was an ad-maker for President Barack Obama. The Anchorage-born-and-raised media expert appears to have gotten so popular and has taken so many projects on, he may have subcontracted Galvin and Gross’ accounts to junior associates.
