Dear Mayor Gerlach,

My name is Matt Winick from  Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and public policy. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.  Mayor Gerlach, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as moderate Republican Mayor of Overland Park, Kansas be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as Mayor of  Overland Park, Kansas, I like on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights,  supporting funds to help women including minorities communities compete in the economy, and pushing for laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the environment, I like on how you supported funds to help expand renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, worked with city services  to improve trash and recycling services to help reduce trash litter in the neighborhoods, and provided funds to help clean up parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use.  Funding special education to help students with disabilities get educational resources to help them learn, expanding after school programs to  provide tutors to help youth on their assignments, and pushing for funds for programs related to arts including diversity to help make education diverse to learn is common sense to improve education reform. I like your approach on improving the economy by expand on job-training programs to help youth including workers develop work-skills to help prepare them for the workforce and provide tax-credits for small businesses to help them be part of the community including help them hire people to work for their businesses.  Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Overland Park, Kansas is how you are working on a plan to improve playgrounds to help accommodate youth with disabilities to play on them with the rest of the children, supporting the need to help restore with preserve historical sites including museums to help make education a better place to learn while improve tourism, and pushing to expand programs to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help from law enforcement resources.

Mayor Gerlach, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for 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 current role as Mayor of Overland Park, Kansas motivates me to continue to learn history and many other subjects.  My future goal is to someday work in history to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have environmental protection, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as Mayor of Overland Park, Kansas. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve Civil Rights,  protect the environment, and many others.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including other subjects. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to improve society, and inspiring me. I wish well on continue to push for common 
sense ideas.

Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me.
