Letter: Election robo-calls unwelcome

Published: Friday, April 5, 2013 3:22 p.m. CST

To the Editor: May I suggest a straightforward way to help decide who to not vote for? Keep a pad next to your phone and every time a politico-dolt has a robo-call made to your residence during your private hours, write down his or her name and do not vote for this person.

Obviously they have little real concern or respect for you because they intrude uninvited at all hours. I just took a call in the middle of doing my taxes, from "Elmhurst Park ..." on the phone ID. Robo call for some Milner character.

Mail your qualifications. Better yet, craft a letter to the newspaper. Better yet, invite challengers to a publicized debate. Don't show your disdain for your potential constituents by interrupting precious private time in their home.
