Letter: Daughtry will stand for women in Augusta

I am a senior at a local private high school. I have been politically active in my community and school since fourth grade. Confronting gender issues and how women are portrayed in our modern society has been a major focus in my life. I feel under- represented as a young female in government. How is our government supposed to be working for the people if a large portion of our population is not equally represented? Therefore, I believe that Mattie Daughtry is the best candidate for District 66 in this upcoming election. Not only does she represent equality, but she inspires other young women to speak out as well. She knows the importance of education and can closely identify with Brunswick students, having attending Brunswick High School herself. Please vote for Mattie Daughtry on Nov. 6.
