Dear Governor Murphy,
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 stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Governor Murphy, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 56th Governor of New Jersey to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 56th Governor of New Jersey, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses to help compete in the economy, and expressing the need for equal pay for women to protect them from being discriminated based on gender. I like your approach on working to improve the economy by expanding job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills and expressing the need to raise the minimum wage to $15 to help minimum wage workers afford to live is common sense. Another thing that I like about your ideas to improve the economy is how you strongly advocate for the need for paid sick leave to help workers get the care they need when they are sick and support health care for part time workers. On education, I like on how you support funds to help improve special education to provide students with disabilities with accommodations they need to learn, work on expand after school programs to provide youth with assistance from tutors on their assignments, and team up with different schools to expand more classes in arts, history, and diversity to make education diverse to learn. Supporting renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, working with city government along with the New Jersey state legislature on providing funds to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use, and joining the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to work with other states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is common sense to protect the environment from pollution. Another thing that I like about your work as Governor of New Jersey is how you support the idea of the need to legalize marijuana for people who need it for medical reasons including reduce high charges for someone who smokes it, support funds for Planned Parenthood to help improve women’s health, created the Office of Immigrant Protection to help assist immigrants or refugees to get legal help when they face deportation, heavily advocate for the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed, and implemented States for Gun Safety, a coalition filled with governors of different states including activist along with state legislature to find ways to reduce gun violence. Also I like on how you are working hard to have a diverse cabinet filled with minorities, women, and people with disabilities.
Governor Murphy, 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 your Facebook page “Governor Phil Murphy” I enjoy learning about your work as Governor of New Jersey and listen to your speeches on advocating for common sense ideas. Also your current role as Governor of New Jersey gives me motivation to continue to learn history with social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these subjects to learn the importance of making Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and improve social justice to make communities a better place.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role. I’m extremely proud on how you are working hard to support expanding Civil Rights, protect the environment, improve social justice, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work on your Facebook page, and be motivated to continue 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 for the future and to do well was Governor of New Jersey.
