Lund Ranch Developer Hires Out of State recorded phone service

Original post made by Violates Do Not Call Laws, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jan 29, 2016

Just got a Pre Recorded junk phone call from 1-402-875-6291 against the local citizens working to put the issues to a vote.
Area code 402 is Nebraska -

Since I am on the Do Not Call list, most of the illegal calls have dissipated,
except for legitimate charities,
and Pakistanians claiming to be from Microsoft Service or Help, who try to get you to visit a scamming website.

I guess the developers ethics are about the same?

It seems like it might be like:

Q. How can you tell when a Politician is lying?

A. When his/her lips are moving!

FYI, another Pleasanton resident in a different Town Square string posted/stated that the referendum petition supporters are also apparently pushing out their own 'robocalls.'

Robocalls are among the worst form of disrespect.

No even a human on the other end,
but I need to stop what I'm doing and answer the phone,
expecting something else.

One of the best ways to get me on the OTHER SIDE of an issue!

Yep - both the developer and Sycamore Heights/Bridle Creek residents are doing it. Why don't you support the only group here that is NOT doing robo calls - Mission Hills and Ventana Hills residents who ask everyone NOT to sign the referendum.

I am on the national do not call list and also my number is unlisted and I got a robot call today asking me not to sign the petition. I can tell you that if they come I will sign it now but wasn't going to before

Are you sure the call was asking you NOT TO sign? The calls I've heard about are asking people TO sign.

Political calls are not subject to the Do Not Call List because such recorded messages or live calls do not include telephone solicitations. So, if you are a registered voter and list your phone number on your voter registration, your phone number is public information. So, if you don't want political phone calls, fill out a new voter registration card and don't list your phone number, which is an optional field!

Here's the information directly from the website about the "Do Not Call" Registry FAQs.

"If I register my number, will ALL unwanted calls stop?
No, the Do Not Call Registry prohibits sales calls. You still may receive political calls, charitable calls, debt collection calls, informational calls, and telephone survey calls."

Seems like both sides are using robocalls. You have the choice to sign or not sign but please base your choice on all the evidence both sides are presenting, not solely on a robocall recorded message.
