Dear Mayor Rawlings,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning 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, and many others. Mayor Rawlings, the main reason I’m writing you is because I find your work as current Mayor of Dallas, Texas to be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as Mayor of Dallas, I am very proud on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in public and education. Also on Civil Rights, I like on how you support funding women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, and support equal pay for women to help protect them from being discriminated in pay.   Funding renewable energy projects to help create clean energy jobs to reduce addiction to oil with gas, implementing Trinity River Project to help clean parks including river with water to make them safe for people to use, and encouraging businesses to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost are common sense to protect the environment.  To help the homeless, I like on how you support funding shelters to help provide homeless people get shelter that they need and implement “The Bridge”, a health care program to help homeless people get the medical care that they need.  Helping the homeless people is a great idea and really makes a great difference in society when both political parties are not advocates for helping the homeless. Implementing Back to School Fair to help encourage youth to be motivated about getting an education, funding special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations to help the get resources that they need to learn, promoting with funding arts program to make education diverse for people to learn, and creating afterschool programs to help youth get the help they need to learn from tutors is a great way to make education a better place. On criminal justice reform, I like on how you are continue to work with law enforcement to find ways to reduce racial profiling along with reduce racial injustice and push for treatment programs to help drug users including victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get the care they need.

Mayor Rawlings, 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 be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your work as Mayor of Dallas motivates me to continue to be interested in learning history.  My future goal is to someday teach history to emphasize the need to make Civil rights stronger, need for checks and balances in the criminal justice system, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to help motivate you to continue making great progress.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as Mayor on different issues. Mayor Rawlings, I’m very proud on how you work hard to make a great difference. You have made a great impact on me to continue to work hard on my disability and to be motivated to continue my interest in learning history. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a difference when times are hard, and inspiring me.  Another thing is I was wondering if you could share with me what it is like being Mayor of Dallas.  I wish you well on continuing your role as Mayor of Dallas and to continue to push for good ideas to make society better.


Matt Winick
