Dear Mayor Su,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American with a strong interest in learning history including social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to advance on Civil Rights to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, have government reform to reduce corruption, and many others. Mayor Su, the main reason I’m writing you a letter to explain how I find your role as current Mayor of Walnut, California and your activism in the Asian American communities to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Walnut, California, I’m proud on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and expressing the need for women to have equal pay. On the environment, I like your commitment to be an environmental stewardship like supporting funds for renewable energy sources (solar, wind, biofuel, and energy-efficient products) to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, providing funds to help clean up parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use, and improving environmental education to help educate people about ways to protect the environment. Pushing for job training programs to help train youth including workers to help them develop job-skills to help prepare them for the workforce and encouraging businesses to hire women, minorities, people with disabilities are great ways to improve the economy. Expanding after school programs to help students get help on their assignments from tutors, funding special education to help students with disabilities get the educational resources they need, working to expand funds for the arts including diversity classes to help make learning a better environment for students are common sense to make education reform a better places. Another thing that I like about your role as mayor is how you provide funds to help re-build Asian American communities, push for diversity programs to help spread awareness with educate people about Asian American or Asian culture, and advocate for Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights.
Mayor Su, 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 and your support for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also as an Asian American with a disability is a struggle for me because some Asian Americans including Asians, some of their parents, and social groups get judgmental along with tease me about having a disability. When I face these obstacles it makes me sad. However, your commitment to help Asian American communities, expand diversity programs to help spread awareness, and advocate for Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights really motivates me to be confident about being an Asian American with a disability when I face struggles and to learn more about their culture. Your role as current Mayor of Walnut, California drives me to continue my interest in learning history with social justice. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring to me and to recognize May Asian Americans who work hard to make a great difference for Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society including the Asian American communities in your current role. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve Civil Rights and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, continue my interest in learning history including public policy, and to be confident about being an Asian American with a disability. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue to make a great difference for society including the Asian American communities.
