Has there ever been more mud-slinging than in this year's Maryland governor's race? It has made me sick enough to agonize over how I can vote. I've decided to take the write-in option. I never do that, but I feel driven to it this time. I am going to write in the name Heather Mizeur. I recall how well she did in the debates, particularly in response to her environmental positions. She did not equivocate. She said, "I oppose fracking in the state of Maryland. " I'm going down fighting for her.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur picked up her first endorsement from a Baltimore elected official Monday as veteran City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke gave her blessing to the Montgomery County delegate's insurgent campaign. Clarke, a longtime fixture in Baltimore politics, hailed Mizeur as an "exciting choice" in a 2014 gubernatorial race that also includes the better-known Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown and Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler. A onetime candidate for mayor, Clarke first served on the City Council in 1975 and was its president from 1987 to 1995.

There may be no more enigmatic concept in politics than negative campaigning. Virtually no one publicly supports it, almost every non-shoe-in political principal uses it, and almost no two people mean the same thing when they refer to it. Periodic hostile and ugly political campaigning goes back centuries in America. In the beginning of the 19th century, there was hatchet man James Thomson Callender's attacks on Thomas Jefferson, claiming the new president fathered children with slaves.

Over the last six months I volunteered with a team of supporters to elect Heather Mizeur as Maryland's next governor. Heather's campaign was inspiring, honest, respectful, progressive and transparent. She ran on issues that matter to Maryland's people. She brought up things that others wouldn't dare touch in a campaign (for example, death with dignity, disability rights and marijuana legalization). She inspired so many new people to care and rally around the vision we share for Maryland.

As a disabled American, I have been anxiously watching the Maryland Democratic gubernatorial debates and reviewing each candidate's disabilities platforms. I was surprised that despite recent Congressional hearings on the death of Frederick resident Ethan Saylor that neither Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's nor Attorney General Doug Gansler's platforms discuss disabled Americans. It leaves me wondering if they know much, if anything, of the struggles of the disabled. In contrast, I did find that Del. Heather Mizeur's way of wanting to educate the state on what it is like to be disabled was refreshing.

M is for marijuana as in she wants make marijuana profitable. I is for indifferent as in she is indifferent about the color of one's skin. Z is for zealous as in she is zealous about making real change in Maryland. E is for enthusiastic as in she is very enthusiastic and has a positive approach. U is for understands as in she understands what her constituents want. R is for rewarded as in Maryland will assuredly be rewarded in making her our next governor. It is just my way of saying that Del. Heather Mizeur will be a very interesting alternative to the Browns, clowns and everyone else who aspires to be our next Democratic governor.

Regarding the recent letter from a reader who praises gubernatorial candidate Del. Heather Mizeur ( "Md. Democrats should give Mizeur a second look," June 6), I concur, and I am a Republican. Delegate Mizeur makes a lot of sense and avoids speaking in generalities. She has a plan. I can detect a sense of honesty in her responses, and that's not true with the other two Democratic candidates. It's hard to tell what any person can do if elected, but If I happened to be a Democrat, my vote would currently be for Ms. Mizeur.

I am sure I speak for most Marylanders when I say that Attorney General Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown have let us down with their bickering and mudslinging and dirty political tactics throughout this gubernatorial campaign. I can't go a day without seeing an outrageously obnoxious ad on TV or receiving a slimy flier in the mail. It doesn't have to be this way. On the contrary, Del. Heather Mizeur has been a breath of fresh air since day one. She has remained positive, even at moments it might have been easy to take a cheap shot at her opponents.

On Saturday April 5, I sat in the Maryland House of Delegates all day, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. I watched as our delegates delayed a vote to "digest the information" and then watched them engage in hours of debate. For some reason, Senate Bill 364, better known as the bill that will decriminalize marijuana, was considered an extremely controversial topic, even in such a blue state as Maryland. Eventually it passed 78-55 in the House ( "Assembly moves to decriminalize marijuana," April 5)

The results of primary elections in Maryland on Tuesday bode well for LGBT rights -- at least according to Equality Maryland, the state's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights organization. Of 93 candidates endorsed by the group in statewide races and the General Assembly this election cycle, 83 -- or about 89 percent -- won their races. That includes Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown winning the Democratic nod for governor and not Del. Heather Mizeur, the lesbian Montgomery County legislator who was also running for the state's top job but did not receive Equality Maryland's endorsement -- to the chagrin of some.

It's been fascinating to see columnist Thomas Schaller and others dutifully acknowledge that Del. Heather Mizeur has run the best campaign and offers the best defined positions in the governor's race but then back off assuring readers that of course she can't actually win ( "Brown's ahead in part because the other two are behind," June 10). There is no "of course" about it. If all the people who keep dithering about whether they are backing a winner would get it through their heads that after looking at all the evidence it is their behavior that determines who wins, then of course Ms. Mizeur would win. It's simple, or would be if the pundits quit confusing the issue.

Maryland gubernatorial candidate Del. Heather Mizeur has decided to run a campaign based upon returning power to the people rather than caving in to the big money that dominates most elections. Ms. Mizeur became the first candidate for the office since 1994 to accept public financing for her campaign - rejecting the notion that elections must be rigged and bought by the biggest spender. Her opponents in the Democratic primary, state Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, have all gone the other direction, wooing lobbyists and corporate executives for cash and more ad time.

Among the participants in this year's Baltimore Pride Parade will be Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, gubernatorial candidate Heather Mizeur and Ken Ulman , who is gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's running mate. The politicians say they have embraced the local LGBT community, with Rawlings-Blake performing the first gay marriage in Baltimore City in 2013 and conducting the first mass gay wedding in Druid Hill Park later that year. Mizeur would be the first female and openly gay governor in Maryland if elected.
