You might be more dedicated. Mine don't even reply to contact when you specifically ask them something, let alone pro-actively contact me. Absolutely rubbish.I'm a councillor. We visit people all year round! Really winds me up when people say we only come round when we want a vote. There's 6000 houses to visit in my ward so it takes a while to get through them all.
Often when we knock doors far out from an election, people look at us baffled because there isn't an election and we're there: "leave me alone". But if we didn't, we'd be accused of not caring about their views. Can't win.
