Dear Mayor Tannehill,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and social justice. 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 Tannehill, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 36th Mayor of Oxford, Mississippi to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 36th Mayor of Oxford, Mississippi, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for minorities including women businesses to help them compete in the economy, expressing the need for equal pay for women, and pushing to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. To improve the economy, I like on how you work on expanding job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work force and team up with career fairs to help them help improve giving details to people about the job description. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, working to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. I like your approach on improving education reform like fund special education to help students with disabilities get the educational resources they need to learn, provide more after school programs to provide youth on getting help on their assignments from tutors, and expand on literacy programs to help students improve on their comprehension. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Oxford, Mississippi is how you are supporting fund to help restore historical sites including museums with attractions to improve tourism while make learning a better place, advocate for the need for affordable housing to help people who can’t afford to live have shelter, and support the need to reduce racial profiling in the criminal justice system to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed.
Mayor Tannehill, 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 current Mayor of Oxford, Mississippi gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. On the NewDeal website about progressive leaders ranging for public officials through Mayors sharing ideas about how to make a great difference for society, I enjoy reading some of your ideas like the need for affordable housing to help people who can’t afford to live, improve social justice programs to help make communities safe, and many others. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment form pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve Civil Rights and push for common sense ideas. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job making a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society.
