U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow
731 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510-2204
Dear U.S. Senator Stabenow,
My name is Matthew Winick, a resident and a constituent in Ann Arbor, Michigan studying history and government. Senator Stabenow Thank you for your hard work and achieving legislation to help our state and America through jobs, healthcare, and protect the environment including our Great Lakes. Senator Stabenow I was able to benefit from your recent work on the legislation like American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the stimulus bill) and The Affordable Care Act. Your sponsor and your support on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act help benefit me in 2009. In 2009 the stimulus bill helped me get into a job training program called The B. Side of Arts (EMU College of Business) where I learn new skills through training with learning more about business. The Job training program paid well and helped me prepare in the future. U.S. Senator Stabenow, I have Autism with a learning disability and 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 your advocacy for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. I am grateful of having you as a United States Senator for Michigan.
The reason I am writing this letter to you is because I would like you to support The Dwight D. Eisenhower National Memorial in D.C. and help the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission with moving the project forward to build the memorial to honor President Dwight D. Eisenhower from being delayed. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission is a great commission and I like Mr. Gehry’s design of the memorial. The memorial design does an excellent job of honoring President Eisenhower for his achievements along with his DDay plan which helped the allies during WWII, upport Civil Rights, and many others. In 2014, The Commission was very kind in giving me a chance to write an endorsement letter to support their work and endorse Mr. Gehry’s design. I am a proud to be a supporter of the memorial. From a history student perspective I believe that President Eisenhower, President JFK, President FDR, President Truman, President Wilson, President Obama, President LBJ, President Lincoln, President Ford, President Carter, President George H.W. Bush, and President Clinton have some similar views and achievements like the need for healthcare reform to help people get the care they need, extend Civil Rights to protect people who are different like minorities, gender, people with disabilities, and people with different orientation from discrimination, and creating job training programs from the government to help train workers and improve the economy.
Senator Stabenow I would like you to support this memorial and help move it from being delayed. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter and keep up the good work to help Michigan with your achievements and the country. I would like to sometime discuss you more about my concerns about our country including Michigan.
Matthew B. Winick
