                                               National Do Not Call Registry:

 I have received many questions about telephone solicitation, so I figured this information might be helpful to eliminate some of those solicitation calls you may receive.  It will not eliminate all of them, but it will certainly help. 

Are you signed up on the National Do Not Call Registry?  It really is very simple.  If you have access to the internet and an email address, here is what you do.   Go to .  Once on that page, you will see several options on the left side.  Click on "Register a Phone Number".  You can enter up to 3 phone numbers at a time, plus you must provide an email address.  Once you provide the email address and confirm the email address, you then click on "submit".  A short time later, you will receive an email for each phone number you submitted.  (if you submitted 3 numbers, you will get 3 emails) In the email, there is a verification link that will put the number into the National Do Not Call Registry.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Officer Joelle Dixon @ 412-831-6800 extension 107.
