Today’s Globe reports Healey’s past action are inconsistent with her current potion in regards to CORI access.
Minutes of the board reviewed by the Globe, however, show that at least a half-dozen times at meetings of the Criminal History Systems Board, Healey voted to deny or restrict access to CORI records to businesses and nonprofit and government agencies
Healey voted against protecting the mentally challenged
On April 18, 2001, the board approved an application from the local chapter of Best Buddies, a national organization that links intellectually disabled people with nondisabled peers. The application was approved 8 to 2, but Healey was one of two members who voted against it.
Than the elderly
A month after the Best Buddies application was approved, Healey opposed an application from Adult Day Care Center Inc., which said it needed to check the backgrounds of potential clients to avoid accepting people who would put other participants at risk. The vote was again 8 to 2 to approve the application.
Also exposed is that Healey has no Criminal Justice career and her one time involvement illustrated a less than stellar attendance record.
While she promotes herself as a career criminologist, Healey’s appointment to the board was her first official involvement in the Massachusetts Criminal Justice Justem.
Yet she missed more than half of the board’s meetings in the two years she served; she skipped every session between August 2001 and 2002, when she resigned to run for lieutenant governor.
