Mayor clarifies current robocall phone number in advocating for Forward Together BoE slate

From the desk of Dawn Zimmer:
Mayor  Zimmer Calls Attention to Incorrect Identifying Number on Her School Board Robo Call                                                                                                                                                                   
                                                                                      
 The phone service, Global Marketing Research Systems(GMRS), that sent out  Mayor Dawn Zimmer's robo call today on behalf on the Forward Together School Board Ticket mistakenly used her City Hall number as the identifying phone number.    

The call was paid for by Zimmer's campaign fund and  no City resources were used. The call was neither recorded at nor sent from City Hall    GMRS  uses campaign phone numbers as the identifying phone number on robo calls.  "We mistakenly secured the phone number through a Google Search, confusing the Mayoral Facebook page for a Campaign Facebook page. We are sorry for any confusion we created," said Chris Stella,  Senior Research Project Director, GMRS.
