Letter: Pledge to work for public interest
To the Editor: Money talks, ethics walk. In my term in the Legislature, I learned that lesson as I saw how special interest money makes its way into the private meetings that decide which legislation moves forward. And I have seen the cost of campaign finance corruption to taxpayers,...
