Dear Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American with a strong interest in learning history with public policy. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Assessor-Recorder Chu, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from District 4 and current role as Assessor-Recorder of San Francisco to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from District 4 from 2007-2013, I was very proud on how you were a strong supporter of protecting women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education and public places. Also on Civil Rights, I liked on how you advocated for people with disabilities’ rights, express the need for women to have equal pay, push for laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect people who are different, and support funding women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy. Working to help Asian American communities get funding to help clean their city, supporting Asian American with disabilities’ rights, helping Asian American small businesses get assistance from city government to help them be part of the community, and expanding on Asian American with Asian culture including education to help teach people about how their culture is important to society are great ways to help Asian Americans including Asians. On education, I liked on how you supported funding special education to help students with disabilities get educational accommodations they need and provided funds for arts including diversity classes to make education a better place to learn. Pushing for renewable energy (wind, solar, biofuel, and energy efficient products) to reduce addiction to oil with gas, expanding on funds to clean up parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use, and encouraging funds for environmental education to help emphasize the need to protect the environment with reduce pollution. In your current role as Assessor-Recorder of San Francisco, I like on how you continue to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and helping Asian American communities. Another thing that I like about your role as Assessor-Recorder is how you work on redesigning the website to help educate citizens of San Francisco about financial including understand about taxes, upgrading technology to help make businesses including constituents file their payment or find forms for them to fill out, and providing multi-language systems to help people who can’t speak English find a suitable language that they can understand. When California made same-sex marriage into law in 2013, I was amazed on how you expanded your office to issue same-sex marriage license for same-sex couples and continue to advocate for same-sex marriage rights.
Assessor Recorder Chu, 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 support Civil Rights including support people with disabilities’ rights really inspire me to work hard on my disability. Also being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me because some Asian Americans including some Asian tease me or push me away from social groups because I have a disability and they believe that I don’t meet their standards. However, your role as an Asian American on helping Asian American communities, supporting Asian Americans with disabilities, and emphasizing on Asian American including Asian culture motivates me to continue to be proud to be an Asian American with a disability. Your role as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from District 4 and current role as Assessor-Recorder of San Francisco really inspire me to continue my interest in history with public policy including an interest in Asian American culture. My future goal is to someday work in public policy to help create common sense ideas to reform society and to visit some Asian American museums including their cities in California.
Assessor Recorder Chu, I strongly believe that you accomplish on making a great difference for society. I’m proud of how you work hard to make Civil Rights stronger, protect the environment, promote diversity, and help Asian American communities a better place. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, be proud to be an Asian American with a disability, and continue to be interested in history with public policy including Asian American or Asian culture. You are a true inspiration and a great role model for me. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making great achievements, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue to make a great impact for society including Asian American communities.
