Dear Governor Grisham,
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. Governor Grisham, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Mexico’s 1st district and as 32nd Governor of New Mexico to be very inspiring to me.
When you served Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Mexico’s 1st District from 2013-2018, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and working with both political parties in congress to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On healthcare, I like on how you support protecting the Affordable Care Act from being repealed in order to protect people with pre-existing conditions or people who can’t afford health insurance and support funds for research in stem cell research to help find cures to different diseases. Also when you were in Congress, I liked on how you used your role as Chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to help advocate for Hispanic rights, express the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries, and many others. In your current role as 32nd Governor of New Mexico, I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help compete in the economy, and working with both political parties in the New Mexico state legislature to improve laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. Funding renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and providing funds to improve city services along with government services to help keep parks including waters along with public lands safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. Expanding on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work-force and advocating for raising the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live are great ways to improve the economy. On education, I like on how you support funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get the accommodations they need to learn, push for after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implement literacy programs to help students along with adults improve on comprehensions or develop literacy skills. Your approach to improve health care like push for more funds in stem cell research to help combat against different diseases, work with state legislatures to expand funds to improve Medicaid programs to help assist people who are low-income or people who can’t afford health insurance, and implementing nutrition programs to help educate about nutrition along with provide people with nutrition to promote healthy lifestyle is common sense. Another thing that I like about your work as Governor of New Mexico is how you support funds to help restore of preserve historical sites including attractions to make learning a better place while improve tourism, expand on drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, and advocate for more services to help people who are homeless get the care they need.
Governor Lujan Grisham, 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. Your role as former Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Mexico’s 1st District and as 32nd Governor of New Mexico 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 need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, improve healthcare reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford healthcare get the care they need, and many others.
