Dear Mayor Lyles,
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. Mayor Lyles, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 59th Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina to be very inspiring me.
In December 2017, I was amazed on how you made history by becoming the first African American woman to become Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. In your current role as 59th Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, 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, and working with city council members to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime. On the economy, I liked on how you expand more job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills and advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage worker afford to live. Supporting funds to improve special education to help people with disabilities get accommodation they need to learn, expanding on after school programs to help provide students with help on their assignments, implementing more art, history, diversity, and basic classes to make education diverse is common sense for education reform. On the environment, I liked on how you push for more funds into renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, expand on funds to help maintain parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use, and push for environmental education to help educate people about the need for environmental protection. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina is how you are trying to push for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford to live, expand food along with health services to help people who are homeless get help, and hiring women, minorities, and people with disabilities work for city hall.
Mayor Lyles, 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. On The Charlotte Post, I liked reading the article “The Consensus Builder: Vil Lyles is the 2018 Newsmaker of the year” because I enjoyed learning about what it is like being Mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina and some of your ideas to improve society. Your role as 59th Mayor od Charlotte, North Carolina 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. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and for Black History Month to help recognize African Americans who work hard to make a great difference for society.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support Civil Rights, protect the environment, and improve social justice. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history including 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.
