The first was a message on my machine. I'm used to Jehovah Witnesses occasionally coming to my door, now they're leaving messages on my phone inviting me to meetings.
The second call I picked up live. It was a recorded message that purported to be a poll. It went something like this:
We have a mayors race. If you are going to vote for Ravenstahl press 1, DeSantis press 2, Olivia press 3, Scott press 4, if you want to keep your choice private press 5. There's also a controllers race. If you're for Lamb press 6, etc.OK, When the message began, I was excited. Maybe someone was conducting an independent poll!
But as the message continued I thought it odd that they didn't indicate who was conducting the poll. Lots of times polls do not indicate who's paying for the poll, but they at least give the name of a market research outfit.
I really started to wonder when the "poll" seemingly wouldn't let you vote for both mayor and controller -- what's up with that?
There was no pause to vote for mayor before controller and at the end it said to press zero to leave your email address if you wanted the results of the poll.
At some point in listening to the message, I thought that it sounded a bit like Mark Rauterkus.
I pressed 2 for DeSantis at the end of the message but that didn't allow me to also press o.
Was it you, Mark?
I don't really know how the poll could even be functional.
