Dear Mayor Gray,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history. In history, I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution,  have government reform to reduce corruption, and many others. Mayor Gray, The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as current Mayor of Lexington, Kentucky to be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as Mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, I like on how you are very committed to be a strong supporter of making Civil Rights stronger to help protect women, minorities, and people with disabilities from being discriminated. Also on Civil Rights, I am very proud on how you advocate for people with disabilities’ rights, push for funding women including minorities business to help them compete in the economy, express the need to have equal pay for women to help them from being discriminated in pay, and expand legislation to combat against hate crime to help protect people who are different.   Pushing for renewable energy projects to help create clean jobs while reduce addiction to oil with gas, and expanding funds to help clean up parks including water resources to help make them safe for people to use are great ways to protect the environment. On the economy, I like your approach to find ways to improve it like encourage small businesses including different businesses to use energy-efficient products to help them reduce high energy cost including protect the environment, support job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills to help them be prepared for the workforce, push for funds to help farmers including local famers get help on growing their agriculture products or help them combat against drought, and reduce high fees on small businesses to help them be part of the economy.  Funding special education to help students with disabilities get educational accommodations that they need, promote funding the arts including history along with diversity classes to make education diverse in learning, and push for after school programs to help youth get help on their assignments are great ways to make education reform a better place. Another thing that I like about your role as mayor is  how you advocate with support the need for campaign finance reform to reduce corruption in elections including public officials like the need for public disclosures  on who is donating to a campaign or candidate,  have a waiting period for public officials to  become lobbyist,  limit how much a lobbying group, corporations or PACs can donate to a campaign, and ban gifts from lobbyist to public officials including congressional members.

Mayor Gray, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights, be an advocate for people with disabilities, and push for laws to combat against hate-crime really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Your ideas about campaign finance reform including government reform with ethics reform intrigues me to learn the need for these core values to reduce corruption, watch documentaries about ethics reform, and read books about having the need for campaign finance reform. Your current work as mayor of Lexington, Kentucky motivates me to continue my interest in learning history. my future goal is to someday teach history to help emphasize the need to make society better like Civil Rights, campaign finance reform , protect the environment, and many others.  

Mayor Gray, I believe that you are making a great difference as current mayor.  Your ideas to make society better including the need to have campaign finance reform with ethics reform  are common sense and not a political issue.  You have inspired me to continue to work hard on my disability,  be motivated to continue my interest in learning history, and understand the need for campaign finance reform along with ethics reform to make elections faire and even make government work.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to push for common sense ideas to make society better, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue your role as Mayor of  Lexington, Kentucky and to advocate for good policies  to make our country a better place.
