A letter about the GOP primary race between Lee Zeldin and George Demos prompted me to write ["GOP primary is alienating voters," June 18].

I am sick of the "robo-calls" that invade my privacy every evening starting at around 4 p.m. and going on until 9:45 p.m. I don't answer my phone any more when the caller ID says "private number" or "name and number unavailable." If someone wants to talk with me so badly, they can leave a message and I may call them back.

The amount of money being spent on these unsolicited calls and mailings could be put to better use. Why not donate to the victims of superstorm Sandy who are still not in their homes?
