Dear Mayor de Blasio,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history and public policy. The main reason I have a strong interest in these subjects is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, have criminal justice reform to reduce crime while protecting people’s civil liberties, and many others. Mayor de Blasio, I find your work as current Mayor of New York City to be very inspiring to me.
I wanted to say Congrats on winning the 2013 New York Mayoral election because I thought you did a great job campaigning on the need for reform, improve worker’s rights, advance on Civil Rights, and many others. In your current role as Mayor of New York City, I like your commitment to be a strong supporter of advancing on Civil Rights to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated. Also on Civil Rights, I like on how you support for the need to fund women and minorities business to help them compete in the economy, advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, and express the need for equal pay for women. Funding special education programs to help students with disabilities get the educational sources they need to learn and expanding pre-kindergarten classes to help young children develop learning skills are great ways to make education reform a better place. On criminal justice reform I like your approach to reform the system by reducing high penalties for people who are in procession of cannabis while expanding treatment programs to help drug users get the treatment they need, push for body cameras on police officers to reduce police brutality or understand how the police handles a situation, and advocate for the need for check and balances to protect people’s civil liberties especially New Yorkers including minorities or people with disabilities from law enforcement abuse while finding ways to reduce crimes. I like your commitment to be a strong supporter of protecting the environment from pollution by supporting funds for renewable energy sources (wind, solar, and energy efficient products) to reduce our addiction to oil with gas, push for funds to clean water resources with parks to make them safe for people to use, and encourage businesses to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost. On government reform, I am proud on how you continue advocating for the need for campaign finance reform to reduce corporations with special interest groups influence in elections or corrupting public officials and to have more disclosures of where they get their money or how they spent it. On the economy, I like on how you support funds for job-training programs to help train youth including workers to help them develop job skills in order to be prepared for the workforce and push to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live.
Mayor de Blasio, I have Autism and having autism is difficult for me because I struggle on comprehending on learning different subjects especially new things, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights, support people with disabilities’ rights, and push for funding for special education really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your current role as Mayor of New York City on making a great difference for society really inspires me to continue being motivated to learn history and understand the need for reform to help make society better and safer for people. My main goal is to continue to pursue my interest in learning history and continue to apply on how different ideas from people can help shape society. Another thing is my future goal is someday to work in public policy so I can use what I learn from history and apply it to help shape different ways to help move society forward when there are struggles. My letter is a gift to you for working hard to make a great difference and also to help motivate you to continue advocating for great ideas.
I strongly believe that you really make a great difference in your current role as Mayor of New York City. I’m very proud on how you work really hard to make a great difference for society. You have truly inspired me to work hard on Autism and to continue my interest in learning history. Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me. I was wondering if you could explain what it is like being Mayor of New York City. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you well on continuing your role as Mayor of New York City.
