“They just do not seem to enjoy that people are private pounds, not tax dollars,” claimed Tim Brazil, vice president of Media Transit. “There is absolutely no motive to suspend the advertising application and all the revenue that will come with it.”

The Caesars advertisement marketing campaign generates about $25,000 in regular monthly revenue, Brazil said.

“I agree. I dislike these advertisements,” Timm commented in reply to anyone who posted a photograph of a bus with the Caesars Sportsbook advertisement, which features entertainer J.B. Smoove dressed as an historic Roman emperor in a green and gold costume.

The adverts, which have also appeared on other transit company buses all over the state, according to Brazil, is component of a national promoting campaign for the cellular athletics betting software and its loyalty rewards software.

A GRTC spokesperson verified the screenshots that Media Transit shared with the Richmond Periods-Dispatch, but denied that Timm or any other employee’s personal emotions about Caesars affected her suggestion to suspend the entire promoting plan.

“Ms. Timm has been really distinct no employee’s placement on the material of any promoting marketing campaign will have any bearing on the acceptance and set up of that marketing campaign on GRTC belongings,” GRTC spokeswoman Carrie Rose Rate stated in an e-mail past 7 days in reaction to concerns about Timm’s remarks on social media.
