Letter: L'Italien stood up, crossed party lines to do what's right

(Continued)

It’s easy for a politician to seek refuge in the extreme wing of his party, to demonize colleagues from the opposing party, to declare fealty to abstract principles at the expense of common sense and bipartisan solutions. But governing is serious business, one that requires our elected representatives to stand up to their own party and to be willing to work with their opponents. Throughout her career, L’Italien has exemplified the very best qualities that we hope from our state representatives. We hope that you will join us in voting to return Barbara L’Italien to Beacon Hill on election day.
