Letters to the Editor

Call candidate after 9, see how she likes it | Letter


Tuesday night, just before 9 p.m., I received an unwanted “robo call.”

This intrusive call was touting the qualities of Karla Jacks, a candidate for Island County commissioner.

The caller ID from this call was listed as coming from a Terri L. Vedder, of Camano Island.

I tried to call both of these people back at the same rude hour, hoping to disturb their dinner, shower or anything else people do later at night.

Of course, neither answered the phone.

Since I will not be voting for Jacks, someone who has poor manners, I would suggest that, if any of you can’t sleep at night, give these people a call after 9 p.m. and see how you are greeted — if they bother to answer their phones.

One last suggestion for the upcoming election races, don’t allow letters to the editor to become free advertising/endorsements for candidates.

Let them buy space in the newspaper like any other business.
