Dear State Senator Bollier,

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 to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. State Senator Bollier, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as a former moderate Republican and as current Member of the Kansas Senate from the 7th district to be very inspiring to me.

When you were a moderate Republican, I truly appreciate on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy,  and working with both political state legislatures to expand laws to combat against hate crimes to help protect minorities including people who re different.  On the economy, I like on how you support expanding on job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work-force and advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers to afford to live.  Funding renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and pushing for funds to help expand on city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people is common sense to protect the environment.  To improve education, I like on how you support funds to improve special education to help assist students with disabilities get the accommodations they need to learn, push for more after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implement literacy programs to help students including adults develop literacy skills or improve on comprehension.  On farmer’s rights, I like on how you support legislation to help protect farmers from fraud or abuse by agriculture companies. Another thing In 2018, I was proud on how you had the courage to give a speech about how the GOP got too extreme, how Governor Brownback pushed for extreme views like tax cuts including cuts against Medicaid including Kansas Care, and how president elect Trump is pushing for controversial ideas.   After you left the GOP and joined the Democrats I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights, support environmental protection, and many others. As a current Democrat, I like on how you are currently advocating for the need for better Medicaid expansion including improvements on Kansascare to help people who are low-income, people with preexisting conditions, and people who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need.

State Senator Bollier, 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.  Your role as a former moderate Republican and as current Member of the Kansas Senate from the 7th district gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice.  I enjoy reading an article about why you left the GOP.  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, improve education reform to make learning better, have health care reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or people who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, 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, and advocate for common sense ideas. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, 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 on running for the U.S. Senate race 2020 and please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.

I was wondering if you could please share with me on how you got inspired to leave the GOP.

Sincerely,

Matt Winick

In 2014 I was able to get an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts from Washtenaw Community College. Even though I got some education, I still struggle with a disability. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability.

Lansing, MI  48909

Dear Attorney General Nessel,

My name is Matt Wnick 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 to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, a strong importance of criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Attorney General Nessel, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 54th Attorney General of Michigan to be very inspiring to me.

Before you became Attorney General of Michigan, I liked on how you use your lawyer role on arguing on the DeBoer V. Snyder on how the Michigan ban on Same-sex Marriage is unconstitutional and advocate  for civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights. In January 2019, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first LGBT person to become the 54th Attorney General of Michigan.  In your current role as 54th Attorney General of Michigan, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice different forms of discrimination or violate civil rights legislation.  Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working with law enforcement to expand resources to help victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and expressing the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to solve evidence efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also on criminal justice reform I like some of our ideas like community service to help non-violent offenders including non-violent juveniles rehabilitate so they won’t re-offend and support the need for programs to help people get assistance on their mental health.  Another thing that I like about your work as Attorney General of Michigan is how you went after industries the illegally polluted the environment or violate environmental protection laws to help reduce pollution, prosecuted public officials that are corrupt or accepted illegal bribes to reduce corruption, investigate health care companies or financial institutions that practice fraud or abuse, and oppose the building of Line 5 to help protect the Great Lakes.

Attorney General Nessel, 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 current 54th Attorney General of Michigan 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, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for Michigan.  Also I’m amazed on how you made history on becoming eh first LGBT person to be elected as Attorney General of Michigan.  I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, and push for criminal justice reform.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and be motivated to continue to learn history including social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great impact on society, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to advocate and push for common sense ideas.
