Dear U.S. Senator Ensign,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including 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. U.S. Senator Ensign, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as U.S. Senator from Nevada and as a moderate Republican to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as U.S. Senator from Nevada from 2001-2011, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses compete in the economy. Another thing was how you had the courage to join moderate Republicans to work with Democrats on supporting repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell to help protect people including women from being discriminated in the military based on their sexual orientation. On the environment, I liked on how you worked with Democratic Senator Harry Reid on pushing for more funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas and encouraging businesses including industries to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution. Being a lead sponsor of the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act and being bipartisanship with Democratic Barbara Boxer of California including moderate Republicans along with Democrats to combat against animal abuse along with push for a high penalty for people who use animals for fighting is common sense to protect animal’s rights. Another thing that I liked about your work in the U.S. Senate was how you were a strong advocate for the need for health insurance to help people with disabilities including people who have autism get treatment programs. After you left the U.S. Senate I liked on how you are a continuous strong supporter of animals’ rights, express the need to reduce pollution, and advocate for Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights as a moderate Republican.
U.S. Senator Ensign, 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 supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role as U.S. Senator from Nevada and as a moderate Republican gives me motivation to continue to learn history including 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 made a great difference when you served in the U.S. Senate. I was very proud on how you were a moderate Republican working on supporting Civil Rights, pushing for environmental protection, and heavily support animals rights. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn more history including social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard in public service, and inspiring me. I wish you the best and please advocate for common sense ideas.
