Mr Donald Mills (Letters, September 22nd. 2005) has it completely wrong.
It is the Governor who has abandoned the principles and policies on which he and the GOP ran for Office. It is the Governor who has abandoned the civil union rights for gay people. It is the Governor who abandoned his commitment to facilitate access to contraception. It is the Governor who advocated the abandonment of civil liberties for Moslems.
We really cannot blame Ms Healey for sticking to her principles.
