Dear Mayor Bynum,
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 for Civil Rights to be strong to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Mayor Bynum, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 40th Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma to be very inspiring me.
In your current role as 40th Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma I really appreciate 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 working with city council to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. I like your approach on protecting the environment by support funds for renewable energy resources to reduce addiction to oil with gas, work to improve city services to help clean up parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use, and encourage industries including businesses to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution. On the economy, I liked on how you are working to expand job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job-skills and pushing to improve career fairs to help educate people about the job description. Support funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities’ get the educational resources they need to learn, advocate for the need to increase teacher’s pays to help them expand on teaching resources, implement more after school programs to provide youth with help on their assignments from tutors, and working with schools to expand on more arts including diversity classes to make education diverse is common sense for education reform. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma is how you implement more community policing for law enforcement officers to work with citizens to help the community in order to reduce tensions between law enforcement with citizens, working to expand training programs to help train emergency first responders to help prepare them to handle different situations, pushing for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford to live get shelter, creating Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Equity to help combat against discrimination including help immigrants or refugees get help in the immigrant communities. Also I like on how you are a moderate Republican on supporting Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights, pushing for environmental protection, supporting the idea of immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees advocating for the need to improve social justice, and many others.
Mayor Bynum, 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. I enjoyed watching TedTalks Youtube called “Partisan Rhetoric Is for Loser” because I liked on how you explained about how the need to run a positive campaign to share on how ideas can make a great difference, what it is like being a moderate Republican, using data points to help voters understand what issue is important, and many others. Your role as 40th Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma gives me motivation to continue to learn history and social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have environmental protection to reduce pollution, and improve social justice.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as Mayor of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve social justice, support Civil Rights, push for environmental protection, and many others. Your talk on TedTalk was very inspirational and really had good solutions to help give voters including citizens the need to vote. You have truly inspired me to work hard on my disability, develop an interest in learning about your work, and be motivated to learn history with social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society. Also my hope is to someday travel and visit Tulsa, Oklahoma and get a chance to visit your office.
