There’s one local candidate who lost my vote several weeks ago. I have no idea what his platform is or how he would govern if elected to the city council. All I know is that he wants my vote. His campaign has robocalled me so many times I’ve lost count.

If you really want my vote, stop using a megaphone and start engaging me and other citizens in a conversation. Find out what issues matter to me. Tell me what you’ll do for our city.

I wouldn’t do business with a company just because it wanted me to, so what makes someone think I’d pick a candidate that way?
