Dear Mayor Tecklenburg,

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 for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.  Mayor Tecklenburg, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 61st Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina to be very inspiring me.

In your current role as 61st Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for minorities including women businesses to help them compete in the economy, and working with city council members to expand laws to combat against hate-crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different.  expanding on jobs-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to prepare for the workforce and expressing the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live are great ways to improve the economy.  On the environment, I like on how you support funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encourage businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and push for funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use. Also on working to reduce flooding I like on how you work on expanding sea walls around the coastal area to help  keep tidal water from rising,  improve storm drains to help reduce flooded water from polluting the city, and many others.  Supporting funds for to improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations to learn, pushing for after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments,  and implement literacy programs to help students including adults improve on their comprehension or gain reading skills is common sense for education reform.  Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina is how you fought against illegal home rental to help protect homeowners or people who rent from fraud, expand on community policing to make police officers engage with the community to help reduce tensions,  work with community organizers along with organizations to improve on programs to help the homeless people get supplies or the care they need.

Mayor Tecklenburg, 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 on Youtube I enjoy watching videos of you expressing the need to improve quality of life, protect the environment, and improve civil rights.  Your role as 61st Mayor of Charleston, South Carolina 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 civil rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, improve public safety to make communities safe, and many others.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, find solutions to improve quality of life, and many others.  You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, 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. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.


Matt Winick
