Two school districts erroneously named on "Robo Call" list | News
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - On Monday, September 17, WSFA 12 News aired a story about school districts in the area employing the use of a robo call service to ask constituents to support Amendment 1 in the vote being held on Sept. 18.
Shortly after the story aired, WSFA 12 News was contacted by two of the school districts listed in the story stating that they did not use the robo call system to support Amendment 1.
"Crenshaw County did not use the mass messaging system to solicit support for Amendment 1," said Crenshaw County Superintendent Randy Wilkes.
The 'School Superintendents of Alabama' incorrectly stated to WSFA 12 News that both the Crenshaw and Butler School Districts employed the service to place the calls.
"It is important to me that the public understand the facts in dealing with this matter," said Butler County School Superintendent Darren Douthitt. "We wanted the public to get a complete idea about voting yes on the amendment. However, we did not do a robo call to send that message. I'm happy that it passed and hopefully it will be for the betterment of the state."
