Connolly’s first TV ad focuses on expired school food

City Councilor John R. Connolly highlighted his crusade against expired food in school cafeterias in the first television commercial of his mayoral campaign.

The 30-second spot focused on an incident in March 2011 when Connolly made surprise visits to four school cafeterias and discovered out-of-date food in freezers. Schools officials ultimately ousted the longtime director of food and nutrition services after finding 280 cases of old food in 40 cafeterias.
