Dear Joe,Friends of Brad Pransky Political Campaign 2015
Thanks ever so much for the quick turnaround of an outstanding one minute Robocall message. We used the piece in our Democratic primary campaign and handily unseated the longtime incumbent. The warm and trusting intonation you brought to the message helped engender a comfort level to listeners often missing from other tedious robo messages. I look forward to calling on you to help our campaign again in the general election this fall.
