My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including social justice, and civics. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have ethics reform to reduce corruption in government, and many others.  Secretary Marshall, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 23rd Secretary of State of North Carolina to be very inspiring to me.

In 1996, I was amazed on how you made history by becoming the first woman to become North Carolina Secretary of State. In your current role as 23rd Secretary of State of North Carolina, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working with minorities communities including women to help their business get funds in order to compete in the economy, expressing the need for equal pay for women to help protect from being discriminated based on gender, and advocating for the need for the need to make Civil Rights legislation to help protect minorities including people who are different.   On ethics reform, I liked on how you pushed for a ban on gifts to staff members of Secretary of State from lobbyist, push for online transparency to show the public about which campaign or candidates get their donation from, and advocating for the need for a stronger campaign finance reform to reduce dark money in elections.  Another thing that I like about your work as Secretary of State is how you worked on reducing late fees on small businesses to help them compete in the economy and teamed up with Attorney General of North Carolina to investigate companies that commit fraud on taxpayers including citizens of North Carolina or create fake charities, and many others. O voter’s rights, I like on how you are a strong advocate for the need for early voting in elections to help voters get to the polls early to vote when they can’t vote, support more fund to help train poll-workers to improve polling locations to make sure that voters aren’t denied, and oppose voter id laws which discriminates against minorities, people with disabilities, and people who are low income.  Besides your work as North Carolina Secretary of State I like on how you work with communities including the educational services to expand civic classes to help educate people about the need to vote, importance of democracy, and a strong need for campaign finance reform.

Secretary Marshall, 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 your role as Secretary of State of North Carolina gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice and civics. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have ethics reform to reduce corruption, and many others.   

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in public service.  I’m very proud on how you work hard to support civil rights, push for ethics reform, and advocating for voter’s rights. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including social justice along with civics. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference in public service, and inspiring me.  I wish you the best to continue to make a great difference.

When you served as 22nd U.S. Secretary of Defense from 2006-2011, I liked on how you worked with Republican President George W. Bush and Democratic President Barack Obama to help our country including the military.  On Civil Rights, I liked on how you advocated for people with disabilities’ rights and pushing for the Defense department to combat against discrimination including hate-crime to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities.  Another thing on Civil Rights was how you worked with President Bush including President Obama to help expand programs to allow women to serve in the military and teamed up with Obama to end the DADT policy to help protect military officials who are homosexual or have a different sexual orientation from being discriminated in the military.   On dealing with the Walter Reed Medical Center Scandal, I liked on how you including President Bush created a President’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors to investigate the current military and VA health system when they neglected wounded veterans or U.S. troops who suffer from PTSD or different diseases.  Another thing that I liked about your work as U.S. Secretary of Defense was how you expressed the need for the military equipment to use energy-efficient products or use renewable energy resources to reduce addiction to oil with gas while reduce pollution, worked with other foreign countries to find ways to reduce nuclear weapons to reach a goal of peace, and pushed for more funds to help improve equipment for U.S. troops to help protect them when they are in combat.  Also In your role as a moderate Republican I’m very proud on how you have the courage to continue support Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights, expressing the need to combat against climate change to protect the environment, and a strong need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries when your own party gets too extreme. During the 2016 Presidential election I liked on how you spoke out against Donald Trump when he used bigotry against people who are different including minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
