Dear Governor Sullivan,
My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and my main interest is studying history. History is one of my favorite subjects because I like to learn about the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination in order to protect people who are different from discrimination, have government reform to reduce corruption, protect the environment from pollution by supporting environmental protection along with renewable alternative energy, finding ways to reduce crime to improve public safety, and many others. Governor Sullivan, I find your work as Governor of Wyoming and later as an Ambassador of Ireland to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 29th Governor of Wyoming, I liked on how you supported Civil Rights to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities from being discriminated with expressing the need for Equal Rights amendment to help reduce discrimination based on gender. Another thing I liked to make Civil rights stronger was your support with implementing Executive Order 1993-4 that was to make your state, public places, government administration, and jobs to be a safe environment from sexual discrimination, intimidation, harassment, and sexual harassment. Also in the executive order I liked on how you added for the need for Wyoming employees to go through training to learn more about how to reduce discrimination with harassment. On the environment, I liked on how used environmental clean ups to help clean rivers, parks, national parks, and Native American reservations from toxic chemicals spills and to help conserve these areas from being damaged. I liked on how you worked with the EPA on cleaning up pollution which contaminated drinking water wells in Brookhurst to help protect citizens and using the national guard to help provide clean water with food to help citizens get access to the supplies that they need. To make public safety a priority while reducing crime, I liked on how you worked with both parties Democrats and Republicans on creating a medium prison to put violent offenders in prison to reduce harm to the public. When President Bill Clinton appointed for being the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland in 1998-2001, I liked on how you worked on finding ways to improve relations with the U.S. and Ireland on like trade with improving worker’s rights. Also in your role as Ambassador of Ireland I liked on how you worked hard to find ways to reduce tension between North Ireland and other Ireland political parties by decommissioning of weapons and making sure the Belfast Peace Agreement didn’t get weaken in order to have peace along with finding ways to improve relations between Ireland and Britain.
Governor Sullivan, your work really inspired me to be interested in studying history. At Washtenaw Community College, I took a 20th century history class where I got to learn about how different events, people, and many others led different countries including the U.S. to change. In my class, my teacher gave a lecture about Ireland, explained about Ireland political parties conflict with one another, and explained about the Belfast Peace Agreement stopped the violence of Ireland political parties. After he gave that lecture I got very interested in learning more about your role as U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. Also when I researched about you, I got very interested in learning about your work as a two-term Governor of Wyoming and I was very impressed with your record on being bipartisan by working with other political parties on finding ways to reduce crime, being a strong supporter for Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from discrimination, protecting the environment from pollution with cleaning up toxic chemicals to help improve public safety, and many others. I’m really inspired by your work and how it makes a great difference and it even made me more motivated to become more interested in studying history to learn how these core values are important to society. My future goal is to use what I learn in history along with learning different core values to teach people about the need to improve society and to continue exploring different ideas to make history a better place. Your work on Civil Rights really inspires me to work hard my disability which is Autism, and to continue working hard to overcome my struggles.
I strongly believe that you really made a great difference as Governor of Wyoming on continuing your support of strengthening Civil Rights to help protect people who are different including implementing an executive order to protect workers from other forms of discrimination or harassment, forging a bipartisanship between both parties to find ways to make public safety a priority in order to reduce crime, using environmental clean ups to clean up toxic chemicals that polluted lands, national parks, Native American reservations. drinking water, and towns and do conservation on these areas to protect them from being disturbed. Another thing is I’m proud of your hard work on working to improve relations between U.S. and Ireland on trade and make sure that Ireland follows the Belfast Peace Agreement to reduce violence. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, inspiring me to be motivated to learn history with working hard on Autism, and making a great difference for our country and the world through your roles as Governor of Wyoming and U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. I want to wish you well at LEWIS ROCA ROTHGERBER LLP where you can continue making a difference for society on your ideas
