Dear Speaker Saiki,

My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history with social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.  Speaker Saiki, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is explain how I find your work as 11th Speaker of the Hawaii House of Representatives and as a Member if the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 26th District to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 11th Speaker of the Hawaii House of Representatives and as a Member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 26th District, I like on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working with both political parties in the state legislature to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime, and supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses compete in the economy.  On the economy, I liked on how you support expanding job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the economy and express the need to raise the minimum wage workers afford to live.  Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and working with both political parties in the Hawaii state legislatures to help expand funds to local cities including the community to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment.  On education I like on how you support funding special education to help people with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn and work with other state legislature to expand more after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors.   Another thing that I like about your work as 11th Speaker of the Hawaii is how you support expanding drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug-abuse, advocate for the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed, and express the need for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford to live get shelter. Besides your work in the Hawaii state legislature,  I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help the Asian American community by providing funds to help maintain the Asian American communities,  supporting Asian American’ rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, and express the need for educational awareness about Asian American culture to help educate people about it.  
Speaker. Saiki, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me when some Asian Americans or some Asians including some peers of them get judgmental about me being different from them or not meeting their standards.  Your advocacy for Asian American with disabilities’ helps give me some confidence about continuing being an Asian American when I face different challenges.  Your role in the Hawaii state legislature gives me some motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society.  I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, help the Asian American communities, and many others.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, try to be confident about being an Asian American when I face challenges, and continue to learn history including social justice.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working  hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to advocate for common sense ideas.

Sincerely,

Matt Winick

Dear Mr. Moll,

My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite tv show that you played in was Night Court. Night Court was a great comedy show about a criminal court where it has a young judge Harry Stone where he has to deal with different antics in his courtroom. In Night Court, I liked on how each of the main characters would have a sense of humor and how when they had differences they would have friendships. Mr. Moll, I thought you did an excellent job making Bailiff Bull Shannon have different unique traits like being protective of Judge Harry when he aces getting bullied by other people, having a sense of humor, caring about his friends like D.A. Dan Fielding,  lawyer Christine Sullivan,  Clerk Mac Robinson, and other friends.  Also another thing that I liked about your character was how he would have catchphrase “Ooo-kay” and make different facial expressions when he reacted to something.  I enjoyed watching all the episodes from season 1 through 9 because I enjoyed seeing how Judge Stone would have friendships with other people and have a comedic.

Besides your acting career, I liked on how you are an activist on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Mr. Moll, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Another thing that I struggle with a disability is when some of my friends including peers of them tease me or get judgmental about me being different and this results in me losing friends and feel like I don’t fit in.  Your advocacy for civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role as BulI Shannon and the rest of the main cast in Night Court helps give me some motivation to work hard on my disability, try to learn how friendships works when things get hard, and enjoy watching comedy.

I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You really did an awesome job making Bull Shannon a great character with different unique traits in Night Court.  Also I like don how you worked with the main cast of Night Court to  make the show have creativity, a sense of humor, and sometimes a good message.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability  and be a fan of your acting including liking Night Court. I was wondering if you could please take the time to answer some of my questions and give me some  advice about friendships when there are challenges on a sheet of paper.  Also here is a small donation to help your cause.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job acting, and inspiring me. I wish you the best for the future.
