Letter: MaryAnn Grim
Less than 100 years ago on August 26, 1920, the 19th amendment passed to grant women the right to vote in the United States. This anniversary holds special meaning for me since gender equity has been at the top of my mind lately. As the Treasurer for The Committee to Elect Mindy Domb, I have had an insider’s view of how gender plays a role in a campaign. Throughout the past several months, Mindy and the dozens of volunteers working with us, have been asked about gender and it

As the mother of two gay sons, I am acutely aware of the ways our world can make their path harder. And I’m also aware — and thankful — that affirming acts can strip hate of its power.

I’m writing in support of Mindy Domb for State Representative, 3rd Hampshire District. Mindy represents everything I believe in – fully funded public education, protecting reproductive rights, protecting the environment, and addressing the issue of income inequality. Above all else, she listens. I had the opportunity to meet with Mindy, and instead of spending our time together telling me about herself, she spent the time asking me what was important to me. Mindy will be a st
