LETTER: Ellmers has been an outstanding advocate

To the Editor:

This letter is in response to Mr. [Neil] Rotter’s Aug. 15 letter to the editor about Rep. Renee Ellmers. I researched further his comment that Rep.

Rather than dwell on charts and graphs, what are the individual issues women face on a daily basis? She advocated a closer look at what the Republican Party could do to impact women’s challenges by advocating commonsense solutions that fix real problems.
