Dear Mayor Barrett,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and public policy. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to advance Civil Rights in order to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Mayor Barrett, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 44th Mayor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 44th Mayor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I’m very proud on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting laws to help combat against hate crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, providing funds to help women including minorities businesses to help compete in the economy, and expressing the need to improve equal pay for women. Funding special education to help students with disabilities get the educational resources they need, implementing more volunteering programs to help engage youth to help their community, and expanding after school programs to help youth get help on their assignments form tutors is common sense. On the economy, I like on how you expand job training programs to help youth including workers to develop job-skills to help prepare for the work force, create The Mayor’s Manufacturing Partnership to help connect employees with potential employees through skills training program, and implement Summer Earn and Learn initiative to help put students in summer jobs. I really like your commitment to protect the environment by supporting funds for research in renewable energy sources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, pushing for funds to help improve city services along with trash/recycling programs to help clean parks including water resources, and working with other U.S. mayors including local officials in Great Lakes At. Lawrence Cities Initiative to find ways to help protect with restore the Great Lakes including St. Lawrence River to help protect it from pollution. Another thing that I like about your work as mayor is how you are an advocate for the need for immigration reform to help protect DACA children including immigrants or refugees from being oppressed, expand on drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need in order to reduce drug addiction, and push for more education awareness programs to help teach people including youth to learn the need to reduce bullying, gun violence, and drug abuse.
Mayor Barrett, 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 work in the Great Lakes At. Lawrence Cities Initiative on working to protect the Great Lakes gives me inspiration to continue to visit The Great Lakes in Michigan and it helps remind me the importance of protecting the environment while make it safe for people to use. Your role as Mayor of Milwaukee, Wisconsin motivates me to continue to learn history and 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, have environmental protection to reduce 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 working hard to improve society. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, continue to visit the Great Lakes, and be motivated to continue to learn different subjects. 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 push for common sense ideas.
