You can't keep a tough grandma down

While I would not claim that robocalling is a wise way to enhance one's name ID, it helps if the script is the least bit clever, and if the name you're trying to enhance is one that people would recognize, in some form, more often than not. Be that as it may, it does appear to be Carole Keeton Strayhorn's re-introduction as she gears up to run for Mayor of Austin. I doubt that I'd vote for her if I were a resident, but the election in the Capitol City will be the more interesting for her presence. You go, Grandma. BOR has more.

When we got that robocall just before election day, we were all "what's she running for?".

She was also on TV as a commentator on one of the local channels on election night, which we also evaluated in terms of visibility. She's one ambitiously sneaky grandma.
