Robo-Call Quizzes Residents About Plainfield Park District

Readers reported getting calls asking them to answer questions regarding the Plainfield Park District.

Robo-Call Quizzes Residents About Plainfield Park District
Several Plainfield residents on Tuesday reported getting automated phone calls, purportedly from the local Republican party, about the Plainfield Park District.

Vicky Polito — an outspoken critic of the recent goings-on at the park district — said she heard from a friend who got the robo-call survey, moments before she got a call of her own shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Polito said she didn't record the call, but believes it began with a message saying it was a "brief survey from your Republican party." The call when on to say,"Currently there are many issues at the Plainfield Park District causing concern with the public, are you aware of them?," asking the listener to press 1 for yes, 2 for no.

Another question asked whether respondents thought the board members responsible for the issues should resign.

Polito said the call came from the number 815-230-7762. A call placed to the number turned up an automated message saying the number was no longer in service.

Another reader reported via Plainfield Patch's Facebook page that she got a similar automated message on her voicemail.
