Letter: Youth in politics
As a high school senior, I have noticed that very few youth are getting involved in politics. I am only 17 years old and, unfortunately, will not be able to vote in the upcoming election.
However, voting is not the only way for me to make a difference in politics. This past year I knew I wanted to do something, so I found State Representative Anna Wills who is running for reelection in District 57B.
Anna Wills and I share a lot of the same ideals, and she is a wonderful person. Helping her with her campaign efforts has given me an amazing experience. Even though I am too young to vote, I can still have an impact on local politics. I believe that more youth should seek this kind of experience.
Just because you can’t vote doesn’t mean you can’t make a difference.
