Reader question robocalls

To the editor,

Most of us have registered for both the Federal and State “No call list”. All of the Credit card help lines, free vacations and insurance scams disregard those lists and call relentlessly and it seems that there is nothing that we can do about it. Now, it is election time and candidates have a “right” to call regardless of registration for “No call”.

The problem now is that at least 2 candidates have called me at least 5 times each day for the past week. It is irritating that my answering machine is filled with the same message up to 5 times every day. I do not mind being asked to vote for you, but, I don’t need the same message on my answering machine 30 times. I considered voting for you the first time, and maybe the second and third times. Now that I have spent so much time deleting that same message so many times, I can tell you for sure that you perhaps cost yourself my vote. During the next election session, go ahead and ask for my vote. I will consider you, but if you call me 30 or 40 times, I will not vote for you. Thank you for considering those people that you hope will vote for you, and perhaps they will vote for you.
