Dear Governor Beshear,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in 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 protect people who are different from being discriminated, have healthcare reform to help people with medical problems get the care they need, protect the environment from pollution, and many other. Governor Beshear, I find your work as Governor of Kentucky to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Governor of Kentucky from 2007-2015, I liked on your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education, pay, and public places. To make school environment safe, I was very proud on how you pushed and signed the anti-bullying legislation to help protect people who are different or with a disability from being bullied. In the anti-bullying legislation, I liked on how you expanded training programs to help teacher including school officials to identify bullying and how to help educate people about the need to reduce bullying. On the energy issue, I liked your approach on providing housing including businesses to have energy efficient products to help reduce waste, high energy cost, and pollution and support for wind, solar, and biomass to end our addiction to oil with gas. Your common sense approach on to reduce drug rates by having treatment programs for non-violent drug users, create a program for accused substance abusers to go through treatment before having a trial, implement assistance program to help victims of domestic violence or a victim of crime get treatment they need, and expand on community services to help rehabilitate juveniles so they won’t re-offend is a great way to reform the criminal justice system. To improve healthcare, I was very proud on how you had the courage to implement KYNECT, a health care exchange reform to help Kentuckians with pre-existing conditions including people who are poor get the medical care they need and also make health insurance companies work together with the state government to help provide medical resources. Also when you were Governor of Kentucky, I liked on you provided funds to help preserve historical sites and clean national parks from being polluted to help improve tourism and to make history a better place.
Governor Beshear, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle with communication, and sometimes I get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights, protect people with disabilities’ rights, and support anti-bullying legislation really inspires me to work hard on Autism. Your role as Governor of Kentucky got me really interested in continue studying history. My future goal is to someday teach people about the need to improve society or work in public policy to help create good common sense policy ideas to help make society better. Also you role on supporting healthcare reform and creating a campaign Save Kentucky Healthcare got me really interested in reading articles about the need for healthcare reform and watch documentaries about the importance of health care reform with stories from people who can’t afford insurance or have pre-existing conditions struggle to get healthcare. I agree with on the need to have healthcare reform and protect it form being weaken to help people get medical care they need.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference in your role as Governor of Kentucky. Governor Beshear, you have inspired me to work hard on my disability, continue my interest in learning history, and to learn the need for healthcare reform. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making great achievements in your role as Governor of Kentucky, and inspiring me. Please share my letter of appreciation f your achievements with how you inspire me with your family.
