I called KC Elections about Stand for Children's rep telling me last night that they got my phone number from them. I was told, they never give out phone numbers or e-mail addresses.
I called Stand and talked to a couple of people I know there. I was pretty clear on my unhappiness. I was told that they DID get it from the voter registration rolls. I told them KC Elections said no so how could this be?
I was told that Stand had used a group - Win Win - and got the list from them and they "probably" got it from the voter registration. I was also told that robo calls are legal because it's a political message being delivered but, of course, they don't mean to bother anyone. (I did look up the group "Win Win" on Google, in several forms and found nothing. )
(I also asked about Peter Maier and they said that no one in that race was recommended by their endorsement group and hence, he was the only incumbent not in their Town Hall.)
I called KC Elections again and went up the food chain. I was told that no public info - phone or e-mail - is ever given out. That info is for KC Elections' use in case of an issue with a ballot. I was told that possibly Stand (or whoever) could have obtained the voter list and did some kind of cross-match with DEX or some other phone entity. I still don't get how that would apply to me as I have an unlisted phone number.
I told Stand to take me off their list. You can call Stand as well at 632-7451 and ask for Brooke Brod who will be happy to take your name off their list.
I think Stand should come clean on where they really got these phone numbers.
