Dear City Attorney Elliott,
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, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. City Attorney Elliott, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current City Attorney of San Diego to be very inspiring to me.
In December 2016, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first woman and Latina to become City Attorney of San Diego. In your current role as City Attorney of San Diego, I truly appreciate on how you are a 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 City of San Diego from both political parties to expand on hate-crime laws to help protect minorities including people who are different. Supporting funds for 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, going after industries that pollute the bay area to help protect the environment while protect people’s public health, and working with city council along with Mayor Kevin Faulconer to expand funds to improve government services along with city services to help clean parks including water resources are great ways to help protect the environment. Expanding on drug treatment programs to help drug-users get help to reduce drug abuse, working with law enforcement to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and expressing the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence or cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail are great ways for criminal justice reform. Another thing that I like about your work in the City Attorney of San Diego is how you advocate for the need for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or people who can’t afford get housing, push for more services to help the homeless people get supplies they need, and express with support the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed.
City Attorney Elliot, 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 current role as City Attorney of San Diego 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, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society. I’m also amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Latina woman to become City Attorney of San Diego. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, push for criminal justice reform, and many others. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more 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 and push for common sense ideas.
