    Mark, whoever you are, I asked to be removed from your list. You replied that you would remove me. Yet, I received this today. I no longer live in Colleyville. You guys are really something else. When will you actually remove me from your list?

      No kidding, I agree. We moved last year after 20 years in Colleyville to Dallas – a real city with real issues of importance. So sad

    The “E-mail list” conclusion was so poorly supported by the accompanying “justifications” that reasonable minds will reject it as political BS, which it is.

    Well Mr. McDonald there goes your Political BS, he obviously refused to identify how he got the email. It has long been suspected the emails were obtained by a disclosure of privacy by members of certain clubs. I suspect there will be other resignations or at minimum a disclosure that members such as Mogged and Miller shared the Lions list.; If not just have your Mr. Henderson come forth with how he has emails from people that never gave them to him. He is not only insulting the intelligence of citizens, but also breaking the anti-spam law, I believe.

    xxxx promptly resigned from the Lions Club after receiving this email. Below is the email as well as Marks reply.

    I have developed a list of email addresses and others have given me some other lists. You must have been on one of them.

    When I emailed you this morning asking to be removed from your list, I asked you where you got my name. You replied, “I have developed a list of email addresses and others have given me some lists. You must have been on one of them.” I deserve to have my question answered as to who gave my name to you as that is a violation of my privacy. I never gave YOU my name or email, never attended one of the events supporting your candidates, and if you used a NON-POLITICAL civic organization to obtain my name and email, I deserve to know that as well.

      Another rebuke to Rick McDonald’s “political b.s.” comment.

        You are right, Nelson. But I am HOT (read that as MAD!) that someone gave my name and email without my permission. And if and when I find out who it was, they will certainly have a piece of my mind.
