Letter: Send Daughtry to Augusta

The Forecaster, October 1, 2012

I write in support of Mattie Daughtry for state representative from House District 66. Mattie is one of Brunswick’s own, graduated from Brunswick schools and has returned to contribute to the state that she loves. Her commitment to advocating for excellence in public schools will be a strong positive in Augusta.

Mattie espouses transparency, Democratic values and she is extremely articulate. Mattie brings a strong political background with experience navigating legislative hallways. She has literally been in politics vicariously via family and friends who’ve held offices at local and state levels since she was very young.

Mattie is uniquely qualified to deal with the problems and political machinations of Augusta today.

Letter: Horch wrong, Daughtry right for Brunswick

The Forecaster, October 1, 2012

In examining the record and person of Fred Horch, I find him wrong to represent Brunswick. Horch claims to be an independent, seeming to be another Angus, but he is not, he is a Green candidate, with a set agenda and platform. The town and state require balance and a measured approach to move forward; I don’t believe Horch can offer this. His attacks on Mattie Daughtry for her youth and inexperience is insulting. Mattie has been a front-row center viewer of the state’s politics for her entire life. She is the embodiment of what we claim to want in Maine: a brilliant daughter who comes home to make her life here.

Mattie is some of the best Brunswick can offer, we should show her off by voting her into office.
