Dear Honorable Molinari,

 

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including 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. Honorable Molinari, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New York 14th and 13th district and as a moderate Republican to be very inspiring to me.

 

When you served as Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New York 14th district (1990-1993) and 13th district (1993-1997), I truly appreciate on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses compete in the economy, and expressing the need to make civil rights stronger to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in public places including education.  On the environment, I liked on how you support funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encourage businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and support expanding environmental protection to help protect public lands, air, and water resources from pollution.  On bipartisanship, I liked on how you worked with Democrats to support the Family and Medical Leave Act which is to require employers to provide employees with job-protection along with unpaid leave when they have to deal with a medical issue or help a family member who has a medical issue and work with Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Biden from Delaware to push for the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 to help protect women from domestic violence along with create witness protection for victims of domestic violence to get protection from abusers.  Another thing that I like about your work in congress was how you were an advocate for campaign finance reform like reducing dark money in elections including campaigns from lobbying groups to reduce corruption and express the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries. After you left public service, I truly appreciate on how you are a moderate Republican on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, express the need for environmental protection to reduce pollution, support the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppression, and to make laws stronger to help protect women from violence.

 

Honorable Molinari, 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, get teased, and sometimes face discrimination based on a disability.  Another thing that I worry about me having a disability is when political parties including the president elect Donald Trump are working to weaken people with disabilities’ rights Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Your role as a former Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New York 14th district including 13th district and as a moderate Republican gives me 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.  Recently, I saw you speak at the DNC Convention 2020 on tv and I thought you really did an excellent job explaining how you worked with Joe Biden to support protecting women from domestic violence and how the GOP got too extreme.

 

I strongly believe that you are made a great difference when you served in Congress. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, protect women from violence, and be bipartisanship.  Also to mention I truly appreciate on how you have the courage to be a moderate Republican and speaking up against Donald Trump when they get too extreme.  You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, and continue to learn different subjects.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas and speak out against hate.

 

Sincerely,
