I received my robo-call from Stand for Children promptly at 5:30 p.m. It advised me to stay on the line. I got to hear Steve's echo voice tell me all the great things that he's done in his term (and his new line which is that they fired the Superintendent before the story broke in the Times - I'd hope so). I was asked - by some staffer - what my question was.
My first question was "how did you get my phone number?" and my second question was "why isn't Peter Maier there?" I was told they got the phone numbers from King County elections and that he didn't know why Peter wasn't there.
I'll have to call KC Elections because my impression was that I gave them my phone number so that they could call me in case of a ballot issue (not to sell to campaigns). So now I'll have to give them my e-mail address because I don't like robo-calls. That's how they got your phone number.
I then said my question was how do these candidates explain the many red flags and community voices they missed about Silas Potter. I said through one question which was kind of odd because the woman herself didn't seem to know what she was asking (I almost think she was a plant). She vaguely asked what they were doing for kids.
Luckily, I had another meeting to get to so I had to go.
Anyone stay for the whole thing?
