Dear Mayor Lempert,
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 for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Mayor Lempert, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey, I truly 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 for the economy, and expressing the need for equal pay for women to protect them from being discriminated based on gender. On the economy, I liked on how you expand on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work skills to help them prepare for the economy, support the idea of the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live, and encourage businesses along with local businesses to hire women, minorities, and people with disabilities. 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, and pushing for environmental education awareness to help teach citizens about the importance of protecting the environment is common sense to protect the environment from pollution. To improve education, I like on how you push for more funds for special education to help students with disabilities get the educational accommodations to help them learn, expand on after school programs to help youth get help on their assignments from tutors, and implement more educational programs like arts, history, and diversity classes to help make education diverse for people to learn, and support literacy programs to help people who are illiterate or have trouble with comprehension to get help on improving reading skills. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey is how you express support for more affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford to live get shelter, create “Access Princeton”, a communication center to help residents get help on non-emergency issues to the city government, and work on restoring historical sites including museums to help make learning history a better place.
Mayor Lempert, 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 On TheNewDeal website about public officials (U.S. Mayors, state legislatures, and other public official jobs) who are progressive where they share ideas about how to improve society, I enjoyed reading about your work as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey and some of your ideas about the need for more affordable housing to help people who are low-income and many other issues. Your role as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey 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 for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have environmental protection to reduce pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to improve society along with support Civil Rights. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work as Mayor of Princeton, New Jersey and to continue to learn different subjects especially history. I was wondering if you could please share with me what Princeton, New Jersey is like. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I hope someday I can visit Princeton, New Jersey and I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society.
