Governor Should Remember Promise

By Craig Dunkerley, Letter to the Editor

In the article on hecklers who greeted the governor in Southern California I was puzzled that he was unwilling to commit to support Proposition 89 (Page 5B, July 26), the Clean Money Initiative for public financing of campaigns. Isn't he the same candidate who while campaigning for governor his first time famously said, "Special interests have a stranglehold on Sacramento; here's how it works: The money comes in, the favors go out, the people lose.'' Is my memory failing me? Or does the governor just hope it is?
