Dear Honorable Mecham,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history. In history I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Honorable Mecham, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts from 1985-2006, I was very proud on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working to improve hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities to work in the U.S. Court system, and expressing the need to continue to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination. On the budget issues, I liked on how you advocated for more funds for the U.S. Courts to help improve pay and benefits for federal judges including staff members who work for the federal courts. Another thing that I liked about your work as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts was how you pushed for ethics reform like ban on gifts from lobbyist to staff members including judges in the U.S. Court system, monitor computers to help reduce pornography in the judicial system, and many others. After you left your role as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S, Courts, I like on how you are continuing expressing support for Civil Rights in order to reduce discrimination, advocating for the importance of ethics reform, and continuously support criminal justice reform like more drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug addictions, improve the court system to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get the help they need to reduce trauma.
Honorable Mecham, 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 role as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts gives me motivation to continue to learn history and even develop more of an interest in learning about the U.S. Courts including the criminal justice system. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have ethics reform to reduce corruption in public service, and many others. Another thing to add is your work as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts helped me develop an interest in learning federal judges’ work in the judicial system.
I strongly believe that made a great difference in the U.S. Court system. Also I’m very proud on how you worked hard to support Civil Rights, improve the criminal justice system, and push for ethics reform. You have truly inspired me to work hard on my disability and continue to learn history including learn more about the U.S. Courts. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it was like being as Director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference for the U.S. Court system, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
