Dear Mayor Beutler,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning social justice, history, 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, have campaign finance reform to reduce corruption in elections including public officials, and many others. Mayor Beutler, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 51st Mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska to be very inspiring to me and to wish you a happy birthday for November 14th.

In your current role as 51st Mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska, I’m very proud on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, provide funds to women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different.   Your approach on improving the economy by expanding on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills to help develop job-skills in order to prepare them for the workforce and encouraging businesses to hire women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work for them are great ways to improve the economy.  On education, I liked on how you supported funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get the educational accommodations they need, expanded after school programs to provide youth with assistance on their assignments from tutors, and implemented community learning centers to help students with illiteracy problems or have trouble with classes get help on improving their comprehension or reading skills.  I like your approach on environmental protection like create The Cleaner Greener Lincoln initiative to help educate citizens including Lincoln businesses about clean energy with energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, push for funds for renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, and expand funds to help clean up parks including water resources to help make them safe for people to use.   Another thing that I like about your work as mayor of Lincoln Nebraska is how you are working to improve the 911 system to help provide citizens with emergency services efficiently, build more sidewalks including bike paths to help protect pedestrian including people who ride bicycles from being hit by vehicles, and express the need for more campaign finance reform along with ethics reform to reduce gifts from lobbying groups or bribes to public officials.

Mayor Beutler, 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.  On Youtube “TedTalks” I enjoyed watching you give a talk about your role as Mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska and your commitment to protect the environment.  Your current role as Mayor of Lincoln, Nebraska motivates me to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger t reduce discrimination, have environmental protection, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve society.  You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work as mayor through TedTalk Youtube, and to continue to learn history with social justice.  I was wondering if you could please share some of your goals that you plan on working to improve Lincoln, Nebraska.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference with common sense ideas, and inspiring me.  I wish you the best to continue to push for common sense ideas.


Matt  Winick
