Golar Richie’s campaign bought $30,000 worth of airtime for 600 spots starting Monday and running until the day before the preliminary election Sept. 24, according to campaign manager James McGee. Golar Richie will release a second commercial on Tuesday.

The spots will run on cable networks in Boston on channels that include Bravo, CNN, VH1, Oxygen and New England Sports Network (NESN) for Red Sox Games.

The commercial offers an overview of Golar Richie’s biography and includes photographs of Golar Richie with Mayor Thomas M. Menino, President Barack Obama, and Boston residents.

“I know what it takes to lead the Boston of the future because I shaped the Boston of today,” Golar Richie says. “I’m ready to work for you as your next mayor.”
