Hey, Texplainer: I have strong reservations about the hold music when I call my representative's Capitol office. Do they choose that themselves?
Anyone in the habit of calling state legislators has probably had the pleasure and/or pain of the hold music to which staffers must occasionally subject them.
Are the musical selections (especially those of the cringe-inducing variety) a reflection of the lawmakers, or is it out of their hands entirely?
Bottom line: Lawmakers, such as Peña (thanks for the help!), cannot be blamed for any hold-induced auditory affliction.
