Dear Mayor Buckhorn,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history with public policy. In these subjects I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, find ways to make public safety better for people, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as current Mayor of Tampa, Florida to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Tampa, Florida, I was very proud on you are a stronger supporter of Civil Rights to help protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education, jobs, and public places. Also on Civil Rights, I am very proud on how you advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, support the need for equal pay for women, fund women with minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and support LQBT rights. Expanding recreation centers to help protect youth from crime, pushing for funds for after school programs to help youth get help on their classwork, and providing funds for special education to help students with disabilities get the care they need are great ways to help the youth and to improve education. On the environment, I like on how you are committed to help clean up parks to make sure that it is safe for people to use, provide funds to help clean up beaches including water to make them safe for people to use along with make tourism a better place, and expand funds to research in renewable energy projects to help create jobs along with reducing addiction to oil with gas. On tourism, I liked on how you along with the City of Tampa worked with tourist attractions like Busch Gardens, Clearwater beach, historical sites, Florida Aquarium, and many others to make them safe for tourist to interact, improve educational learning, and provide funds to them to protect them from being damaged. Pushing for drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need so they won’t get addicted again, hiring police officers to help combat against crime, expanding community service to help non-violent offenders along with non-violent juveniles rehabilitate so they won’t re-offend, providing educational awareness about the need to reduce crime, and supporting funds to make emergency services along with treatment programs to help victims are common sense to reduce crime while make public safety a priority.
Mayor Buckhorn, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having Autism is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. I have visited Tampa several times and I enjoyed seeing the Clearwater Beach, Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, and many others because these things gives me great motivation to learn about the need for diversity, the need to continue to protect the environment from pollution, and learn more about history. Mayor Buckhorn, your work as current role as Mayor motivates me to continue being interested in learning history. my future goal is to someday to teach history or work in a museum to help people understand the need to have diversity, make Civil Rights stronger, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as Mayor of Tampa, Florida. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to make society better. Another thing is I’m very proud to enjoy visiting Tampa and seeing many interesting sites. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue my motivation to learn history. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to overcome different challenges, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue to make society better and I hope someday I can come back to visit Tampa.
