Letter: Daughtry in House District 66

Brunswick’s schools provide an excellent education, but lately our town has been forced to lay off excellent teachers and raise property taxes at the same time. It’s not sustainable, and one of the reasons we’re in this position is that we don’t have a champion in Augusta fighting to give Brunswick schools adequate funding.

That’s why I’m thankful Mattie Daughtry is running for the Maine House in District 66. Mattie is a daughter of Brunswick who has gone through the school system and understands education policy better than anyone else in this race. Mattie is steadfast and hard-working, and she’s a natural leader who can pull together people of all stripes to accomplish great things. She is a fresh face with no political baggage, and I’m proud to call her a friend.

Let’s make Mattie Daughtry the champion of our schools by sending her to Augusta on Nov. 6.
