Dear Mayor Caldwell,
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, find ways to improve public safety to help protect citizens from danger, and many others. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your current work as 14th Mayor of Honolulu, Hawaii to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Honolulu, I like on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights to protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in education, public places, and jobs. Also on Civil Rights, I like on how you are an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, make public places have accommodations to help people with disabilities to get access to them through transportation or getting assistance on different services, support LGBT rights to help protect them from being discriminated based on their orientation, and express the need to help expand equal pay for women. Fixing roads to help reduce potholes ompleting a rail train to help transport people from East Kapolei to Downtown Honolulu to help people get to their destination including reduce long traffic waits, and push for laws to combat against hate-crimes are great ways to improve public safety. On the environment, I am proud on how you are a strong supporter of funding renewable energy projects (wind, solar, biofuel, and energy efficient products) to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, expand funds to help clean beaches along with parks to help reduce pollution while make them safe for people to use, and fix water pipes to help provide people with safe water for them to use. To help the homeless I like on how you provide hygiene facilities to help make people who are homeless healthy, expand on funds for homeless shelters to help provide then with shelters, and work on funding health services to help them get the medical care they need. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor is on how you help fund historical areas including national parks to be preserved to improve tourism and to make learning history a better place for people to learn. Also I like on how you use your role as Mayor to help recognize police officers, activists, minorities, women, veterans, and people with disabilities who work hard to help make society better.
Mayor Caldwell, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having Autism is hard for me because I have trouble 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 and support people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your work to help recognize people from different backgrounds inspires me to write letters to people who I believe that make a great difference or how they inspire me. Also your work as Mayor of Honolulu inspires me to continue being motivated to continue my interest in learning history with public policy. My future goal is to someday teach people about the need to improve society or work in public policy to help shape common sense ideas to help make society better.
I strongly believe that you make a great difference for society in your current role as Mayor of Honolulu. You have truly inspire me to continue to work hard on my disability, continue my interest in learning history, and to help recognize people who work hard to make a great difference or who inspire me by writing letters. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it is like being Mayor of Honolulu and explain what Honolulu is like. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference for society, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue making a great difference to make society a better place for people.
