Un­so­licited calls need to stop

The Citizens' Voice - - EDITORIAL -

Ed­i­tor: Why is it that we are sub­ject to so many un­so­licited phone calls on land lines and cell­phones?

Do you re­ally think that with the tech­nol­ogy to­day it can not be tracked and elim­i­nated? I the­o­rize that the AT&TS and Ver­i­zons are prob­a­bly in­volved in some way. If in none other than they ben­e­fit from their rates and fees.

They ob­vi­ously have a very ef­fec­tive lobby in the swamp. I know that we can mon­i­tor most calls with caller IDS, but the sheer vol­ume of these calls with even lo­cal num­bers, is frus­trat­ing and most an­noy­ing.

I am usu­ally against more reg­u­la­tion, but feel we are just con­tin­u­ing our vul­ner­a­bil­ity and we should re­quire our leg­is­la­tors to act on this is­sue. Wayne C. Wil­liams Dal­las
