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.
