Robocall Response; Jeff Templeton PDF Print
Written by Steve Frank   
Friday, 12 April 2013 15:01

In the political arena, many folks in the town of Boone received robocalls last night in an opinion poll on the next mayor of Boone.  With Loretta Clawson saying she would not run again, the call polled those who answered to choose among a number of current town council members, then added the name of Jeff Templeton.  To that distinction, Templeton had a response that reads:
"Although I am flattered to be included in the recent robo-call survey for the position of Mayor of Boone, as a resident of the ETJ, I am neither eligible nor interested in the position.  The inclusion of my name in the list of prospective candidates was unauthorized and likely designed to determine the political persuasion of the call recipient.  I do not know who is responsible for generating the calls, but wish him the best in either finishing his college degree or finding steady employment as a bar tender."
