Dear Mayor Jackson,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including 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 a priority, understand the need for diversity, and many others. Mayor Jackson, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as current 57th Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Cleveland, I like on how you are a strong supporter of advancing Civil Rights to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education, public places, and jobs. Also on Civil Rights, I am very proud on how you are an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, provide funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, work with minorities communities to find ways to reduce racial profiling, and support LGBT rights. Pushing for community policing to allow police officers to work with the community to reduce tensions, expanding training programs to help police officers be efficient at their job or how to deal with a crime in different methods, and funding for forensic science including DNA testing to reduce sending an innocent person to jail are great ways to reform the criminal justice system. Your approach to improving the economy like working with small businesses to reduce high fees to help them be part of the community and pushing for job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills to help prepare them for the workforce is common sense. On the environment, I like on how you expand funds for renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, provide funds to help clean parks along with water resources to reduce pollution with protect people, and encourage businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost. Funding special education to help students with disabilities get educational resources that they need, fund arts including history to help make education diverse, expand recreation programs to help youth get engage in activities to reduce them from getting into crime, and push for after school programs to help youth get help from tutors on their assignments are great ways to improve education reform. Another thing that I like about your role as Mayor of Cleveland is how you work with different attractions like historical sites, museums, and entertainment industries by providing funds to help improve tourism, restore attractions to make them safe and make education with diversity a great way to learn.
Mayor Jackson, 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 to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and support people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your work on restoring historical sites along with attractions and your current role as mayor motivates me to continue my interest in learning history along with public policy. My future goal is to someday go into public policy where I can use my history method including my learning skills of different issues to help shape common sense ideas to make society better. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for October 4th.
I believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as Mayor of Cleveland, Ohio.
