Dear Mayor Yarber,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and public policy. In these subjects I like to learn the need to advance Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, find ways to improve to community to make them safe for people, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as current Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, I like on how you are a strong supporter of protecting women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in public places, jobs, and education. Also on Civil Rights I am very proud on how you are a strong advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, support funding women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and express the need for women to have equal pay to help end discrimination in pay based on gender. On education, I like on how you fund special education to help students with disabilities get educational accommodations they need to learn, fund the arts program in schools to help youth get engage in learning, implement Project Reads to help early children develop literacy skills, push for afterschool programs to provide tutors to help youth on learning different materials, and promote volunteering programs to help youth get involve in helping the community. Your commitment to make education and youth causes a better place is common sense and a great idea to make society better when both political parties ignore these values. On the environment, I am very proud on how you are a strong supporter of funding renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, expand environmental education to help educate people about the need to protect the environment along with understand the need to reduce pollution, and provide funds to help clean parks including rivers or water resources to make them safe for people to use. Another thing that I like about your current work as Mayor is how you provide funds to help protect historical sites around Jackson, Mississippi to help preserve them to help educate people along with tourist about history and how history played a role in society. Working to fix roads to help reduce vehicle accidents, improving transportation services to help people with disabilities get access to traveling, and fixing water pipes to help people get access to water safely are great ways to improve public safety to make them safe for people.
Mayor Yarber, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having Autism is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning subjects especially new things, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights, be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, and support funding special education really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also being a Christian with a disability is hard for me because some Christians along with other people tease me about having a disability. When I get teased or being judged about having a disability I lost faith. Your role as a pastor on preaching for the need to not promote hate against people with different background or a disability, the need to help the poor, and the need to make Civil Rights stronger really inspires me to work hard on my disability, learn the need to help the poor, and to continue having faith as a Christian with a disability when I struggle with different challenges. Your work as Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi motivates me to continue my interest in learning history along with public policy. My future goal is to someday teach people about the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, need for diversity to make society better, and express the need to make social justice a better place for people who are different.
Mayor Yarber, I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role. I’m very proud on how you work hard to help the community including education, Civil Rights, and youth causes become a better place. You have truly inspired me to work hard on Autism, continue being proud to be a Christian with a disability with having faith when times are hard, and continue my interest in learning history. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make great achievements when there are challenges, and inspiring me. Please feel free to share my letter with your family and the rest of your staff. I pray for you to continue making a great difference in society and I wish you well to continue advocating for great ideas to make society better.
