Scott Seeks to Connect with City Voters Through Modern Methods

By Frank Parlato

JULY 7, 2015

A shoe phone is a very effective and unobtrusive communications device to keep people connected.
A carrier pigeon can connect with voters with inspiring messages.
Flag Semaphore, perhaps on the Maid of the Mist, might make an elegant 'connect' with voters.
Telegraphing voters who know the Morse Code will connect in an impressive way.
Walkie Talkies are a great way to communicate with VIPs.

In one respect, Niagara Falls Council candidate Ezra Scott offers something different.

He has listed, on his Scott for council calling card, along with his slogan, “A Connected City is a Protected City,” some seven different ways to connect with him:

1.  Cell phone

2.  Email

3.  Facebook

4.   Snap Chat (photos sent by phone which recipients can view for 1- to 10 seconds, after which they disappear.)

5.  Twitter (online service that enables users to send and read short messages called "tweets")

6.  Skype (a two way video phone call where you can see who you are talking to and vice versa.)

7.  Instagram (an online service that enables users to take pictures and videos, and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Flickr)

These are all nice ways to communicate with potential voters, especially younger voters who are attuned to all these things.

But, while seeming complete, some of us older voters have not yet availed ourselves of these most excellent ways of communicating

Mr. Scott would you consider:

1. Landline phone (To connect with voters 60 years old and older)

2. Home or business address for postal communications. (60 years and older)

3. Fax (60 years and older)

4. Pager (60 years and older)

5. Walkie talkie. (70 years and older)

6. Flag semaphore (80 years and older)

7. Telegraph (90 years and older)

8. Sign language (any age)

9. Message in a bottle (100 years and older)

10. Carrier pigeon (110 years or older)

11. Smoke signals (125 years or older)

12. Wells Fargo or Pony Express (150 years or older)

13. Candles in the window (239 years or older).
