Women’s votes can change the nation


If you thought that your vote doesn’t matter, think again.

I’m writing to urge women to vote.

Over the previous times, we’ve witnessed a continual decline at both local and national elections.

If you see a need for change at any level of government, I implore you to vote. It’s our duty to be engaged as a citizen, especially in these challenging times.

I’m very fortunate to come from a long line of strong women. My great-great-grandmother, Martha Thompson, picketed the saloons in Sweet Home because of the dire need for safety. My great-grandmother, Lettie Sankey, served as mayor here. My grandmother, Audrey Bryant, taught me about serving others and patriotism for our country. My mother, Mona Waibel, was a community pillar who loved and served our wonderful town.

Mom’s best friend, Alice Grovom, says, “I’m blessed to live in a country where I have the privilege to vote.”

Now, more than ever, make your voices heard. The women of this country can make the change.
