Dear Honorable Walker,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, public policy, social justice, and many others. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to advance Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, have healthcare reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, and many others. Governor Walker, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as 11th Governor of Alaska to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 11th Governor of Alaska from 2014-2018, I’m very proud on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funding women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and working with Native Alaskans communities to help them get the care they need with different things. On healthcare, I liked on how you had the courage to sign into executive order to expand Medicaid health care program to help cover many people who are low-income, people with pre-existing conditions, people with disabilities, Native Alaskans, children who need medical assistance, and many others get the medical care they need when the state legislature did not want to work on health care reform. Also on the health care executive order, I liked on how you worked with President Obama to find ways to make Medicaid expansion better like provide funds to hospital so they can help patients, expand on women’s health care to help them get check ups, fund medical research to find ways to cure different diseases, and work with non-health profit organizations to find ways to help the community. Support funding renewable energy projects (solar, biofuel, energy efficient products,) to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encourage small businesses including industries to use energy efficient products, and provide funds to help clean rivers, parks, and drinking water to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment from pollution. Funding special education to help students with disabilities get the educational accommodations they need, expanding after school programs to help students get help on their assignments by tutors, and providing educational awareness to help address the need to stay away from crime are great ways to make education reform a better place. Another thing that I liked about your work as Governor of Alaska is how you demonstrate bipartisanship by working with Democratic Lieutenant Governor Bryon Mallott to find ways to improve Alaska, advocate for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed, and express the need for campaign finance reform to reduce dark money in elections in order to prevent corruption.
Governor Walker, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Another thing is your role as 11th Governor of Alaska motivates me to continue my interest in learning history. My future goal is to someday teach history to help emphasize about the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others to make society better. Also I liked on how you made history by becoming the first Independent political party to win the governor’s race to become the Governor of Alaska.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference when you served as Governor of Alaska. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to make a great difference on Civil Rights, environmental protection, healthcare, and many others when there are challenges. Governor Walker, you have truly inspired me to continue to work hard on my disability, continue my interest in learning history, and to be motivated to learn different ideas or different ways to overcome different challenges. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to help you continue to be motivated to make a great difference. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make great achievements when there are challenges, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas when our country faces troubles.
