“Yes On 933” Forces Enlist WWII Vet

New radio spots back Washington ballot initiative, highlight ballot printing error

 Updated:

The Property Fairness Coalition, the chief backer of Washington’s Initiative 933, has released two more radio ads, both featuring World War II veteran Buck Compton. One ad is for statewide use and the other for use in Skagit County, where proponents of the measure have argued that a ballot printing error has omitted a full description of the proposed initiative (which is required by law).

“Yes on 933” Radio Ad 7: “Buck Compton — Skagit County”

Narrator: Buck Compton, decorated World War II veteran, featured in HBO’s Band of Brothers.

Compton: We paid a heavy price in World War II defending freedom and protecting your rights — including your right to private property. As a judge, after the war, I continued that fight. Regrettably, Skagit County mailed voters incomplete ballots, leaving out critical information on Initiative 933. I can assure you that I-933 protects you and affirms and strengthens the constitutional protection of the right of private property. Please join me in fighting to protect your rights once again by voting “yes” on I-933.

Narrator: Paid for by the Property Fairness Coalition, which includes Skagit County Farm Bureau.

“Yes on 933” Radio Ad 8: “Buck Compton — Statewide”

Narrator: Buck Compton, decorated World War II veteran, featured in HBO’s Band of Brothers.

Compton: We paid a heavy price in World War II defending freedom and protecting your rights — including your right to private property. As a judge, after the war, I continued that fight. Initiative 933, on your current ballot, is another step in that fight. I can assure you that I-933 protects you and strengthens and affirms the constitutional right of private property. Do not be misled by the false claims of the opposition. Please join me in fighting to protect your rights once again by voting “yes” on I-933.

Narrator: Paid for by the Property Fairness Coalition, which includes the Washington State Farm Bureau.
