Dear Mayor Brainard,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history with 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 Brainard, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Mayor of Carmel, Indiana to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Carmel, Indiana, 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 compete in the economy, working with city council 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 expand on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the workforce and providing tax-credit to small businesses including local businesses to help them hire people to work for them. Funding special education to help students with disabilities get the educational resources they need to learn, implementing more after school programs to provide youth with help on their assignments from tutors, and pushing for more arts, history, and diversity classes to make education diverse to learn is common sense. I like your approach on protecting the environment while reduce climate change by supporting funds for renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy-efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and providing funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Carmel, Indiana is how you work with other U.S. Mayor from different political affiliation in the U.S. Conference of Mayors on finding different common sense solutions to improve social justice. Also I like on how you are a moderate Republican on support advancing Civil Rights to reduce discrimination, pushing for environmental protection in order to reduce pollution, advocating for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed.
Mayor Brainard, 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 Mayor of Carmel, Indiana gives me motivation to continue to learn history with 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, protect the environment from 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 a moderate Republican on supporting Civil Rights, protecting the environment, and expressing the need for immigration reform. Also I like on how you are working with other U.S. Mayors in the U.S. Conference of Mayors to find common sense solutions when both political parties ignore these ideas. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, be interested in learning about your work, and be motivated to learn more 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 difference for society.
