If you were Queen of the World, what would you do in your first few months in office?

What have you or your family done personally to survive the recession?

"Expand the food I grow, thrift store shopping, cut down on going out to eat, dumpster diving, harvesting food that is going to waste. Questioning every purchase I make."

What problems do you see being the most troubling for women in Athens County?

"Poverty, a lack of job opportunities and sub-par education are huge issues facing everyone in Athens County. I know a lot of strong, hard-working, intelligent women who are doing less than stellar because of the situation here, and it hurts to know that almost anywhere else, they'd thrive."
--
Caitlin Seida, 21, a freelance writer from Nelsonville

Do you think gay marriage should be legal in the United States? Why or why not?

"Absolutely. Do we, or do we not, believe that everyone is created equal? If we adhere to that belief, then gay people should be allowed to marry. It doesn't threaten me. I don't understand why it would threaten anyone else."
--
Debbie Williams, 60, a paralegal from Millfield

Has the elevation of Sarah Palin's public persona been good or bad for women in America?

"I believe it's had both effects. She has a somewhat alienating personality and hasn't always been presented well in the media, but the fact that one of the two major parties had a women on the ticket as a vice-presidential candidate has opened the door for women in some ways."
--Erin Hyman, 28, an office manager/delivery driver from Athens

Are you concerned about your privacy when you participate in Facebook and other social networking sites? Why?

"For sure! It is definitely important to keep certain things such as your address and phone number off those things. I also think people need to start watching what pictures they post and be more careful when they post status updates when they say exactly where they are going all the time! Makes stalking and finding someone real easy nowadays. You have to be careful because even if you're adding only your friends, they are easy to break into. Someone could always leave their account up on accident, or they could let their friend on it not knowing their intentions!"
--Shana Snyder, 22, graduate student/substitute teacher from Athens
