Jeb Bush’s media restrictions for Sioux City speech

Here’s an email outlining the restrictions which will forbid anyone outside of the room from directly hearing what former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has to say tonight in Sioux City, Iowa:

Dear Siouxland Media –

Thank you for your continued support and coverage of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner.  We are grateful for your efforts to cover this event each autumn.

We remain most appreciative of your interest in this evening’s speaker. As you may recall, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s keynote address is entitled “America’s Promise in Uncertain Times.” He is expected to speak for approximately 40 minutes and he will then take questions from the audience.

Governor Bush will not be doing any interviews this evening.   While still photographs are permitted throughout his presentation, no audio recordings whatsoever are permitted and B-roll video (no audio) is permitted for the first three (3) minutes of his presentation.  

…Please understand that these are stipulations and obligations from the speaker’s agency representing the Governor, and the Chamber is contractually required to adhere to them. 

….We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Mary Koster
Executive Secretary
Siouxland Chamber of Commerce
