No More Robo Calls

We are having many contested primaries and I have received robo calls from Meg Whitman, George Runner, Sheriff Hoops and many other candidates this week and it’s becoming a distraction. Now I wonder why a friend such as Wendy Maier was advised not to purchase robo call services in her campaign for State Assembly.

I could understand why candidates purchase robo call services; it helps reach many voters for the most effective cost. However robo calls should be used sparingly, peppering people daily will only turn off potential supporters.

Since I have not done an absentee ballot, I will be pleased to support the candidates who haven’t pestered my household with robo calls this week.

  1. I’ve been blessed by not getting robocalls, but I am getting sick of the mountain of mass mailings that I’m getting. I hadn’t looked at the junk mail in a few days, but when I went through it today, there were at least a dozen mailers from Meg Whitman or Whitman supporters that all pretty much said the same thing about Steve Poizner’s liberal record. Unfortunately for Whitman, this got me thinking; if she’s such a fiscal conservative, why am I getting so many expensive mailings from her? Am I to truly believe that after the election is over, she will suddenly become a model of fiscal restraint?

    However, my real concern with Whitman is that I don’t see any ideas from her about how she is going to work with the Legislature. “Whether you like it or not,” the governor has to work with the legislature to get anything done; a governor is not a CEO. Not that Poizner or Brown are demonstrating how they will work with the legislature either…
