Dear Mayor Tornek,
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 Tornek, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 55th Mayor of Pasadena, California to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 55th Mayor of Pasadena, California, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help compete in the economy, and working with city council members to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. Supporting jobs-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work-force and advocating for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live is common sense to improve the economy. To protect the environment, I like on how you support renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and expanding funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources. Your approach to improve education like support funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to improve learning, push for after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implement literacy programs to help youth including adults improve on comprehension or gain reading skills is common sense. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Pasadena, California is how you push for community policing to have law enforcement officers engage with the community to reduce tensions, work with other organizations to expand on programs to help homeless people get supplies that they need, and advocate for the need for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford to live get shelter.
Mayor Tornek, 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 55th Mayor of Pasadena, California gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for November 23rd.
