Default Let's flood our new Governor to be

Hello this has been forwarded to me and I personally am writing my letter tonight, please read and if you find can help we would appreciate it.

vicki

Okay, let's have some *political* fun. I say "fun" because, I see our
government officials HAVING FUN playing games with our lives. Well, we in
Alabama just influenced two lives: Don Siegleman's and Bob Riley's, by
playing the game of "get the word out".

Neither is worthy of the office of Governor. Siegleman is a KNOWN public
liar so we did not want him to be re-elected. Bob Riley is somewhat of an
unknown. We know he supports the death penalty. We know we do not, but
then so did Siegleman support DP. Siegleman supported Bill Pryor and his
truth in sentencing rhetoric. He about HB 61
http://www.governorpress.state.al.us...2001-09-29.htm

No thought was given at all to the prisoners and their families. Bob Riley
knows that he is in office because he got the votes of those who typically
never bothered to vote, much less vote Republican.

Bob Riley's campaign platform was to get rid of corruption in government.
We participated in a 30-day prison phone boycott because of the corruption
within the prison system, and because we have some answers to the problems
that exist within the Department of Corrections in Alabama. Bob Riley
should hear what this particular group of citizens have to say. A letter
campaign is Roberta Franklin's idea and I think it's a terrific idea.
[Roberta Franklin, Alabama talk show host on WAPZ 1250 AM radio
www.1250wapz.com].

Robert Franklin's message below says it all. I just wanted to throw my two
cents into the arena, because her idea is a PERFECT lead-in for our idea on
the team concept of prisoner [inside] and collaborator [outside] introducing
information on Restorative Justice and Prison Reform to their Members of
Congress :-).

I think Roberta has a wonderful idea, and I will get busy on my letter as
soon as I send this invitation out to everyone across the nation and around
the world. Can we get letters coming in from all over the place so that
Riley knows that other states and other countries are watching to see what
Planet Alabama does with its citizens next?

Blessings,

==================================
Roberta, even though Siegleman is still at the capitol, I wonder if the
address at the capitol would serve to reach our new governor, Bob Riley.
Perhaps you can call them and ask if mail to the newly elected Governor Bob
Riley would reach him if sent to the capitol:
600 Dexter Avenue
Montgomery, AL 36104

SHERRY, SIEGLEMAN HAS CONCEDED. WE NEED TO LAUNCH A LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN,
NOW, CONGRATULATING THE NEW GOVERNOR. THE LETTERS NEED TO COME FROM THE
INMATES AND THE FAMILY MEMBERS. NO LONG LETTERS, ONE PAGE IF POSSIBLE(THEY
WILL NOT BOTHER TO READ LONG DRAWN OUT LETTERS) WE NEED TO CONGRATULATE HIM
AND LET HIM KNOW THAT WE KNOW THAT THE MOVEMENT WE STARTED HAD A LOT TO DO
WITH HIM GETTING INTO OFFICE. HE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT AFRICAN AMERICANS VOTED
REPUBLICAN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HIS CASE. HE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE RADIO
SHOW AND IT'S IMPORTANCE IN GETTING THE WORD OUT AS WELL AS THE PATRICK
CRUSADE. HE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT SENDING INMATES OUT OF STATE IS NOT THE
ANSWER, THIS IS A HARDSHIP ON "FAMILY MEMBERS" VOTERS, NOT THE INMATES.(GET
MY HINT.) NO THREATENING LETTERS ONLY A LET US SIT DOWN AND WORK SOMETHING
OUT LETTERS. ONE PAGE LETTERS, LEGIBLE WRITING. HE NEEDS TO BE FLOODED WITH
LETTERS FROM INMATES, FAMILY MEMBERS, PRISON REFORM ORGANIZATIONS, ETC. THIS
WILL LET HIM KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS. SHERRY, A SPECIAL LETTER FROM YOU
BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN DOING THIS LONGER THAN ME. STATE WHAT IT IS WE NEED OR
WANT.
1 DEAL WITH THE OVERCROWDING
2 THE HABITUAL OFFENDER
3. THE MEDICAL CARE
THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLES. YOUR CORRESPONDENCE WILL BE MUCH MORE THAN A ONE
PAGE LETTER. PLEASE HELP ME GET THE WORD OUT. I AM LOOKING FOR AN ADDRESS ON
RILEY NOW. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE:
HONORABLE BOB RILEY
POST OFFICE BOX 2042
ANNISTON, ALABAMA 36302

AN INMATE SENT ME A COPY OF A LETTER HE SENT HIM CONGRATULATING HIM AND
TELLING HIM THAT THE TOWN HALL MEETINGS AND THE RADIO SHOW HAD A STRONG
IMPACT ON THE ELECTION. TALK TO YOU VERY SOON. I AM PREPARING ALL THE
DOCUMENTED CASES OF MEDICAL ABUSE AND ASKING HIM TO REVOKE NAPHCARES
CONTRACT, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE MEDICAL. I JUST GOT A COPY OF
A
LAWSUIT THE MOTHER OF A 24 YEAR OLD SENT ME WHO DIED FROM INADEQUATE MEDICAL
CARE AT ST.CLAIR. HEY I FEEL GOOD MY SISTER. I WAS A LITTLE DEPRESSED, BUT
NO
TIME FOR THAT NOW. WE HAVE TO GET BUSY AND GET THESE FAMILY MEMBERS WRITING
LETTERS. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
LOVE, ROBERTA
