Dear Mayor Trantalis,
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 Trantalis, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 42nd Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, Florida to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 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 to help them compete in the economy, and working with the city commissioners to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. Expanding jobs-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the workforce and supporting the need to increase the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live is common sense to improve the economy. Also on the homeless issues, I like on how you are working hard to repeal Homeless Hate Laws which make it illegal to feed the homeless people so that homeless people get food supplies that they need, expand services to help homeless people get food along with other supplies like medical, and improve shelters to help assist the homeless get bed or hygiene cleaning. Supporting funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations to help them learn, expanding afterschool programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implementing literacy programs to help youth including adults gain reading skills are great ways to improve education. On the environment, I liked on how you support funds for renewable energy projects to reduce addiction to oil with gas, encourage businesses including housing to use energy efficient products to reduce high-energy costs while reducing pollution, and working to expand funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. Another thing that I like about you role as Mayor of Fort Lauderdale Florida is how you work with city commissioners to expand funds to help protect the coastal area including beaches from being polluted, expand funds to help preserve or a restore historical sites including attractions to improve learning while make tourism stronger, and advocate for ethics reforms like banning gifts to public officials from lobbyists to reduce corruption.
Mayor Trantalis, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending learning different advanced subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your Cadet meant to be a strong supporter of civil lights including people with disability rights really inspires me to work hard in my disability. Also your commitment to help the homeless people gives me motivation to do some volunteering work with other volunteers from Vineyard Community Church in Ann Arbor Michigan to help feed the homeless people with foods supplies in groceries. You’re well as current mayor of Fort Lauderdale Florida gives me some 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, help the homeless people or low income people get the care they need, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current role as mayor. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, work on finding solutions to help the homeless people, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, have some motivation to volunteer to assist homeless people, and 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 to continue to make a great difference for society and to continue to advocate for commonsense ideas.
