Re "Anti-Phone Soliciting Bill Survives," Aug. 22: Who counts, lobbyists or voters? State Sen. Liz Figueroa (D-Fremont) candidly admits it's a "tough call to go against friends." The lobbyists are "friends"? That explains everything. What about the voters, like me? I get several junk calls a day in spite of the fact that I have an unlisted number. Our representatives should seek friendship from us, the beleaguered and fed-up voters. Pass the anti-phone-soliciting legislation.
