soliciting money for their campaign fund???? I'm really pissed off right now. After paying $600.00 for a crown (that has not be seeded yet) I get a letter addressed to only me (not hubby too) asking for donations for this guys run for city council. It makes me want to puke! I'm fuming mad.
I called his office as it is littered with his campaign literature, I'm guess he owns part of the practice ??? I told them I wanted a new dentist. I guess I've never had a physician or dentist approach me for money for their own needs.
Well, while I really think you should be honest with him and let him know how you feel, I will say this about the letter: Maybe he's sick and tired of the B.S. in City Council and has gotten to that place where he is like, "For the love of GOD, DO I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING MYSELF?!" and has entered the campaign.
If that's the case, and he's not a career politician but a dentist and business man who is sick of stupidity in government, then I don't blame him for reaching out to people who "know" him.
Depending on how the letter was worded, I think it's reasonable to ask for "support, and, if you're really inspired, donate to the cause" kind of thing. I mean, who else are you going to go to if you want to fix a broken government if you can't start with the people who know you and--in theory--know you are an honest and competent person?
In this campaign letter he wanted to ensure people that he loves taking caring of his patients. He promises to protect the quality of life we experience here & wants to implement an economic plan to diversify the city's economic base. Then it goes on to say how we can donate.
Oh - he owns part of the practice, so I guess it is okay to use my address.
what you dentist did is unethical - I believe he could be reported to the Dental Commission or Board or whatever - or at least they could tell you whether its allowed for medical and dental people to use their patients like a mailing list. He sounds kind of pushy and underhanded and shouldn't be in any public office.
i like my dentist but he's the kind of guy that, if you called him on something he would go, oh wow, i am so sorry. haha he's so funny - he gives high-fives when we're all done and says because he was so invasive we have to do the decent thing and get married
