Dear Mayor Gutierrez,
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 to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Mayor Gutierrez, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as current Mayor of Moreno Valley, California to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Moreno Valley, California, I like on how you continue to support advancing on Civil Rights to help protect minorities, women, and people with disabilities from being discriminated in public, education, and jobs. Your record on Civil Rights like funding women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, push for women to have equal pay, and work with businesses to encourage to hire women including minorities is common sense On people with disabilities’ rights, I’m amazed with your work on helping them by support funding special education including learning support services to help student with disabilities’ get the educational accommodations they need to help them learn, work with different businesses to find ways to help accommodate people with disabilities to work, and advocate for people with disabilities’ rights. Your commitment to Civil Rights and support people with disabilities rights really makes a great difference for society. To protect the environment, I like on how you push to fund renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, provide funds to help clean up rivers including water services, and expand on environmental education to help educate people about the need to protect the environment. Creating job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop job skills to help prepare them for the economy, encourage businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to help protect the environment while reduce high energy cost, and create an initiative to work with different businesses including industries and food services to improve customer services along with find ways to improve consumers safety are common sense to improve the economy. To improve education, I like on how you created a program to have high school students to do an internship with City Hall while they receive high school credit, push for afterschool programs to help students get help on their assignments by tutors or participate in recreation programs, fund special education, arts, and history to make education diverse.
Mayor Gutierrez, 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 a supporter of people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Your story about being a special education teacher, running for City Council, and becoming Mayor motivated me to continue being confident in having special education along with learning support services help me through elementary school through Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan where they worked with me on having extra time on exams, have a T.A. or a tutor help me learn different subjects, use educational software along with a recorder to help improve my comprehension or note-taking skills, and many others. Even though I struggle with a disability in education, in 2014 I received an Associates Degree in Liberal Arts at my community college. My main focus in Liberal Arts is history, government, some business, some science, and criminal justice. For the future, my goal is someday go into public policy to help create common sense ideas to make society better. Also your work as Mayor of Moreno Valley, California and your story helps me continue my motivation in learning history and to continue to work hard on my disability when I face different struggles. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me.
