Dear Mayor Nirenberg,
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, improve social justice to make society a better place, and many others. Mayor Nirenberg, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Mayor of San Antonio to be very inspiring to me and to congratulate you on winning the 2017 mayoral election race.
In your current role as Mayor of San Antonio Texas , I’m very proud on how you are committed to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, expanding laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses compete in the economy, and expressing the need to improve equal pay for women. Your approach on improving social justice like supporting the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed, working with minorities communities including law enforcement resources to find ways to reduce racial profiling, and pushing to improve law enforcement services to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence to get the care they need is common sense. On the economy, I really like on how you expand job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills to help them prepare for the workforce, support the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live, and encouraging businesses including local or small businesses to hire women, minorities, and people with disabilities. To protect the environment, I liked on how you are a continuous supporter of the need to expand renewable energy projects to reduce addiction to oil with gas while reduce pollution, express the need for city council to endorse the Paris climate accord in order to lead by example on reducing pollution, and provide funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. Another thing that I like about work as mayor is how you create the Mayor’s Housing Policy Taskforce to find ways to have affordable housing for people who can’t afford to live, push for more services to help people with mental illnesses get the care they need, support having drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the assistance to reduce drug addiction, and work with law enforcement to push for community policing to help reduce tension between law enforcement and the community.
I wanted to say congratulations on winning the 2017 San Antonio Mayoral race and I’m very proud on how you expressed the need to make government be better for people including improve social justice. Mayor Nirenberg, 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. Another thing is I enjoy your Facebook page where I get to learn about some of your common sense ideas to improve society or social justice in your live videos. Your work as current Mayor of San Antonio, Texas motivates me to continue my interest in learning social justice and history. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to improve social justice, protect the environment, make Civil Rights stronger, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are doing an excellent job on making a great difference in your current role as mayor in your first term. You really inspire me to work hard on my disability, be interested in learning more about your work on improving society, and to continue to be motivated to learn social justice including history. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making great achievements, and inspiring me. I would like to get a chance to meet with you to learn more about your role as mayor and for me to share with you what it is like having autism. Again congrats on winning the 2017 election and I wish you the best to continue to push for more common sense ideas.
