Dear Mayor Larson,
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 on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, find ways to make social justice a better place, and many others. Mayor Larson, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as Mayor of Duluth, Minnesota to be very inspiring to me.
In January 2016, I was amazed on how you made history by becoming the first woman to be Mayor of Duluth, Minnesota. In your current role as Mayor of Duluth, Minnesota, I am very proud on how you very committed to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education and public places. Also on Civil Rights, I like on how you are an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, support equal pay for women to help protect them from being discriminated in pay based on gender, help fund women with minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and support LQBT rights. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights is common sense and really makes a great difference in society. Funding special education to help students with disabilities to get the educational accommodations that they need to learn, expand the arts program to help engage students to learn different diversity or help them learn a new trait, and pushing for after school programs to help youth get help on their assignments are great ways to make education reform a better place. In order to help make your city safe, I like on how you push for volunteer programs to help engage youth, veterans, and adults to help clean up the community from trash, provide funds to help make emergency services train responders to help prepare them for an emergency, hire police officers with emergency responders to help improve public safety, and push for treatment programs to help drug-users or victims of domestic violence get the care they need. Pushing for funds to clean up parks with rivers to make them safe for people to use and supporting funds for renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas are great ways to protect the environment and to even help reduce pollution. Also I like on how you are a strong supporter of social justice like the need to help people who are low-income develop job-skills so they can work, support the need to improve health care to help people who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, support women’s rights, and many others.
Mayor Larson, 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, be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, and fund special education to help people with disabilities really inspires me to work hard on my disability and to work hard when I face different challenges. Also your work as Mayor motivates me to learn history and understand the need to make social justice a better place. My future goal is to someday teach history to emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger, a strong need to make social justice a better place, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to congratulate you on becoming the first woman to become Mayor of Duluth, Minnesota.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society in your current role as Mayor. Again congrats on you becoming the first woman to become Mayor and I’m proud on how you work hard to make a great achievements. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, continue to work hard when I face different challenges, be motivated to continue to learn history, and understand the need for social justice to be a better place. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a difference, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue your role as Mayor and to continue to advocate for great ideas to make a great difference.
