Statement from Senator Kathleen A. Marchione (R,C-Halfmoon)

“This afternoon, my Albany Office received 20 calls from constituents inquiring if we had sent out ‘robo’ (automated) calls regarding casino gaming asking whether individuals support or oppose the issue. Constituents have said that the voice on the robo call claims that it originated from my office. For the record, my office is NOT sending these calls out. We are presently trying to find the source of the calls and are in the process of reporting them to State Attorney General Schneiderman’s Office. If a constituent in the 43rd Senate District does receive such a robo call, I ask them to please contact my office at 455-2381, or e-mail me so we may compile a complete record for the Attorney General to help stop these annoying robo calls. Thank you.”
