Dear Mayor Rogero,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history with public policy. In these subjects, I like to understand the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, improve youth programs, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Mayor Rogero, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 82nd Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee to be very inspiring to me.
In December 2011, I was amazed on how you made history by becoming the first female to become Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee. In your current role as Mayor of Knoxville, I like on how you are very committed to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education and public places. Also on Civil Rights, I like on how you advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, express the need for equal pay for women to help protect them from being discriminated based on gender, work with women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and provide funds for minorities communities to help improve their community. Your approach to improve education by funding special education to help students with disabilities’ get educational accommodations they need to help them learn, pushing for more arts programs including diversity classes to help teach people about the need for diversity in society, supporting early childhood education including reading literacy programs to help improve youth’s comprehension, and expanding after school programs to help them get assistance from tutors on their assignments is common sense. I like your commitment to improve youth causes by working with city services including other non-profit organizations to help promote volunteering programs to help engage youth to help their community and work on creating internships for the Mayor’s office to help teach high school students about how city government works. On the environment protection, your approach on improving it like working to improve recycling services including trash services in neighborhoods to help reduce trash litter in a community, expanding on environmental education to help teach people about the need to protect the environment, supporting renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, and providing funds to help clean up parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. On the economy, I really like on how you continue to expand on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills to prepare them for the economy, create an economic development committee to find ways to improve the economy around Knoxville, TN, and encourage businesses to hire women, minorities, people with disabilities, and people who are LGBT. Another thing that I like about your role as Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee is how you are very committed to help recognize people who are different for making a great difference for the community and support funds to help preserve historical sites including museums with attractions to help make learning a better place for history including improve tourism.
Mayor Rogero, 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 your advocacy for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your commitment to preserve historical sites and your role as current Mayor of Knoxville, Tennessee motivates me to continue my interest in learning history with public policy. Another thing is your work on supporting diversity helps me learn the need for diversity to make society a better place. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring to me and for Women History Month to recognize women who work hard to make a great difference.
