Ad placed by Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce took out full-page ad in The Seattle Times
SEATTLE—There was one thing wrong in a full-page ad in The Seattle Times urging state lawmakers to pass a transportation package aimed at persuading Boeing to build the new 777X in Washington.
The headline read “The Future of Washington,” referring to the Chicago-based firm keeping work in the state, but the photo was of an Airbus jetliner, not a Boeing.
The ad was placed by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, which is part of the Aerospace Partnership of business, labour and economic development groups.
