Kerry Healey on Principles & Values

 


Republican governor balances 87% Democrat legislature

I think it's very important to have balance in politics. The thing that concerns me most is that if Deval Patrick wins this election, we will go back to the Dukakis era, where there was only one party represented on Beacon Hill. Right now 87% of the legislature are Democrats. We are tenuously holding down the corner office so that there can be dialogue, so there can actually be some real democracy and discussion on Beacon Hill.

Focus on giving voters a meaningful choice

Q: What won it for you and the governor back in November 2002 was running against the Democratic control on Beacon Hill. Is this going to be a major theme to you in the fall?

A: Yes, and I think the theme is going to be that there's a meaningful choice, and that you can choose to have a representative in the corner office who has a long history of standing firmly on the side of the taxpayers, & is not a recent convert to this philosophy.
