For at least 1 month (maybe longer) everyday my mailbox has been flooded with candidates mailings telling me how great they are and how only they can help our City and our Community. All mention their greatness and what they have done to help the Community (even if you've never heard of them before now and/or know that the issue they're speaking about wasn't even on their radar until they decided to run for office).
About 2 weeks ago I got disgusted seeing all these mailings which have been flooding my mailbox (today I got 8 mailings from 2 candidates or organizations supporting those 2 candidates) and my recycle bin and got a great idea which will also help the Post Office. I mail them back to the candidate stating "refused - return to sender."
I know this is a way for the candidates to get their message out, but come on in 2 weeks I've received over 30 mailings! Luckily I've only received 1 call asking me to vote for a candidate and that was today and it was for D.A. and I know they got my number from my local Democratic Club since my disconnected landline is still listed on my voter registration information and I'm not changing it.
