Tony Kennon, mayor of Orange Beach, Alabama, told ABC's Robin Roberts that BP's point man in the Gulf hasn't kept all of his promises. In millions of dollars worth of BP ads, Darryl Willis pledges to stay in the Gulf until all of the spill is cleaned up.
BP has put Willis in charge of the claims process. "BP has got to make things right, and that's why we're here," Willis says in the commercial.
But Kennon isn't a fan. "I've been in a meeting with Mr. Willis where he made promises and didn't follow through," said Kennon.
"Didn't even show the courtesy to return phone calls," Kennon complained.
"The ads are a lie with statistics. They're not doing anything like they're saying or promote through these ads," he explained.
BP is doesn't need a multi-million dollar ad campaign, according to Kennon. "I keep saying, they can save themselves $50 million just by doing the right thing. If they did that, we would be, by far, their best promo. We would send their praises to high heaven if they did the right thing," he said.
