Letter: Daughtry offers a woman's perspective

Matthea (Mattie) Daughtry is one of three candidates for Brunswick’s District 66 seat in the Maine House. Mattie has worked for private business, a statewide nonprofit serving disabled adults and children, and in Augusta politics. She is bright, talented, honest, and experienced. She would be a great choice for all of these reasons. But to me the most important reason of all is that she is both female and eminently qualified. Politics should not be a boy’s club – there are not enough women in politics at any level. We would be fortunate to have a woman of Mattie Daughtry’s intelligence, experience, and integrity representing Brunswick.
