Dear Honorable Davis,
My name is Matthew Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and my main interest is learning history, social justice, and public policy. The main reason I have a huge interest in studying these subjects is to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, have government reform to reduce corruption, and many others. Honorable Davis, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Kansas House of Representatives from the 46th district and your activism to be very inspiring to me
When you served as Kansas House of Representatives from the 46th district, from 2003-2015, I really liked was when there was a recession you cut your own pay raise including your office budget to reduce corruption and express the need for campaign finance reform to reduce money from lobbying groups into elections or campaigns. On the environment, I liked on how you supported for renewable energy sources to reduce addiction to oil with gas and increase more environmental education to help teach people ways to protect the environment. On sponsoring legislation, I liked on how you are committed to help protect worker’s rights by supporting H 2218 a bill to help protect workers from an abusive workplace environment to help make working place a safe environment and to reduce bullying with hazing. I liked on how you worked with both parties Democrats and moderate Republicans on finding ways to help pass a transportation bill to help fix roads, and have ways to combat at crimes like protecting women including children from trafficking or being stalked including from domestic violence and increase laws to combat against drug dealers while having drug treatment programs for drug users to reduce drugs addiction with making public health a priority. Another thing, I liked your commitment to help support Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, support the need to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different and even working hard to try to get an Equal Rights Amendment passed to help combat against discrimination even though the state legislature didn’t support it. On the economy, I liked on how you support expanding job0training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work skills and advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help workers afford to live. To improve education I liked on how you supported the need to fund special education to help students with disabilities get the educational resources they need and pushed for after school programs to help youth get help on their assignments or get them involve in recreation activities. After you left public service, I’m very grateful on how you are a continuous supporter of Civil Rights, advocate for the need for ethics reform, and many others.
Honorable Davis, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your work in the Kansas State Legislature and your continuous advocacy for the need to have bipartisanship along with a strong need for ethics reform motivates me to continue my strong interest in learning history, social justice, and public policy. My future goal is to someday work in history or in social justice to help emphasize the need to make Civil rights stronger, have environmental protection to reduce pollution, improve ethics reform to combat against corruption.
I strongly believe that you have made a great difference when you served in the Kansas state legislature. I’m very proud on how you worked hard to improve Civil Rights, teamed up with moderate Republicans to find ways to improve society, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to be motivated to continue to learn history including other subjects. Recently, I heard that you announced that you are running as a Democratic candidate for the second Congressional District of Kansas and I wish you well on your campaign. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference while advocate for common sense ideas, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas to make society a better place.
Matthew B. Winick
