Dear Editor: In regards to Robert Workman's letter of Oct. 20, "Drugs 
aren't Libertarians' top issue": I don't call myself a Libertarian, 
but I must respond to Mr. Workman, because I believe he has done a 
disservice to Loretta Nall's campaign to become our governor.

Either he must be attempting to prevent her from becoming the 
Libertarian candidate, or else he is simply uninformed about her 
campaign issues. I have recently looked at her campaign Web site, and 
heard her twice on local talk radio programs in Montgomery, and she 
is far from being a one-issue candidate, although it seems media is 
attempting to make her look that way.

I may not vote for her, but I will say that Loretta Nall impressed me 
with her knowledge and her ability to more than hold her own when 
being interviewed.

More impressive to me, is that as part of a project of mine, I have 
submitted a question by e-mail to, thus far, eight candidates for 
governor or lieutenant governor, and she was the only one even to be 
courteous enough to acknowledge receiving it.

My question was: "Will you actively support the proposition of 
bringing Initiative and Referendum [I&R] to the voters of Alabama, 
both in your campaign, and afterward?" Loretta Nall replied the same 
day I sent it to her with a response of "Yes."
