Dear Attorney Marsh,
My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, public policy, and criminal justice. These subjects are y favorite to learn because I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, find ways to improve public safety while reducing crime, and many others. Attorney Marsh, I find your work as former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida very inspiring to me.
When you served as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida from 2010-2015, I was very proud on your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and protect women, minorities, people with disabilities, and people with different sexual orientation from being discriminated in public and education. To help improve Civil Rights, I liked on how you prosecuted people who committed hate-crimes to protect victims of hate-crimes and advocating for the need to reduce hate-crime to make society better including people who are different. Your commitment to combat against financial fraud like prosecuting IRS identity theft, working with other U.S. Attorneys including President Obama with then Attorney General Eric Holder to refund fraud cases to improve investigations with helping victims of financial fraud get justice they need, and pushing for educational awareness to help people learn about how to protect themselves from financial fraud is common sense. Another thing that I was amazed was on how you your role as U.S. Attorney to create the Big Bend Coalition Against Human Trafficking, an agency group filled with government officials, law enforcements, and advocates for victim’s rights to work together to find ways to help victims of human trafficking while combating against human trafficking crimes. Also I liked on how you established public school educational programs to help teach children about the dangers of gun violence and help teachers including school officials learn how to protect students from gun violence in schools. After you left your role as U.S. Attorney I am very proud on your commitment to continue advocating for the need to reduce human trafficking crime, expand programs to help victim of crime especially victims of human trafficking, support people with disabilities’ rights, and need to advance on Civil Rights to reduce discrimination.
Attorney Marsh, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects and sometimes I struggle with communication when speaking with other people. Also having a disability is hard for me because I get teased by other people. Your work as U.S. Attorney on protecting Civil Rights, prosecuting hate-crimes, and advocating for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on Autism and to be interested in learning different subjects. Your commitment to work hard to create a coalition to combat human trafficking, implement a treatment program to help victim of human trafficking, and prosecute people who commit human trafficking got me very interested in learning the need to reduce human trafficking by watching documentaries about human trafficking with learning on how victims of that crime work hard to recover. In 2014, I took an Intro To Criminal Justice class at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In the class I enjoyed learning about how the court system works, how law enforcement works, Miranda rights, different Supreme Court cases, and different criminal justice terms. My criminal justice instructor also explained to me about how criminal justice reform is important like fund DNA testing with forensic science to reduce wrongful convictions, create education awareness to help educate people about the need to stay away from crime, have drug treatment program to help drug users get the treatment they need so they won’t get addicted, have community service to help non-violent offenders with juveniles get help to reduce re-offending, and expand programs to help victims of crime get the assistance they need to recover from trauma. Attorney Marsh, your work as U.S. Attorney gives me motivation to continue being interested in leaning history to understand the need to improve society and how ideas can shape the world.
Attorney Marsh, I strongly believe that you made a great difference for society in your role as U.S. Attorney where you worked hard to reduce crime while implement common sense ideas to help people be protected from crime or get the help they need. You have made a great impact on me to continue to work hard on Autism, motivate me to learn about how there are good ideas to make society better, and be interested in learning history including criminal justice. My future goal is someday to use what I learn to teach history or work in public policy to help educate people about the need to improve society with common sense ideas. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference for society, and inspiring me. I was wondering if you could please share some advice about working hard on Autism and explain what it was like being U.S. Attorney. I wish you well for the future where you can continue advocating for great ideas.
Matthew B. Winick
