Spring Lake, NC  28390

Dear Mayor Rey,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history and public policy. The main reason I have a strong interest in these subjects is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, have healthcare reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as Mayor of Spring Lake, North Carolina on different issues to be very inspiring to me.

In your role as current as Mayor of Spring Lake, your commitment to help improve education by creating  “Read with Mayor”, a program where people volunteered to read at elementary schools to children for an hour to help improve children’s reading literacy is common sense. To improve the economy, I liked on how you build a bi-partisanship coalition of different political parties including business and community organization to help save Fort Bragg from losing military jobs due to cuts.  Pushing for green energy efficient homes to help reduce high energy cost for homeowners and support funding renewable energy like wind, solar, biofuel, and energy efficient products to reduce pollution including reducing addiction to oil with gas is common sense and a great thing to help protect the environment. On Civil Rights, I am very proud of your commitment to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education and public places.  After serving in the U.S. Army, I am very amazed on how you use your role as Mayor to create the “Mayor’s Plaque of Freedom” award to help honor veterans who work hard to help the community and expand funding for veteran’s programs to help U.S. troops including veterans get the care they need or helping them with employment.

Mayor Rey, I have Autism with a learning disability and having it is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects and sometimes other people tease me. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including protecting people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on Autism.  Also your work as Mayor on pushing for good ideas really inspire me to continue studying history and learning about the need for ideas to improve society.  My future goal is to use history as a tool to teach people about the need to improve society and the need for bipartisanship to help move the country forward. Also my letter to you is a gift to you to celebrate Black History Month because I strongly believe that you made a great difference for society.

Mayor Rey, I strongly believe that you really make a great difference as Mayor of Spring Lake.  Also I’m very proud of you for working hard on pushing for better protection for the environment, make Civil Rights stronger, being bipartisanship to help save jobs, improving education to improve literacy, and helping U.S. troops including veterans get recognition for serving the community or their country.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make great achievements, and inspiring me. I wish you well on continuing your role as Mayor where you can continue doing great work.
