Dear Mayor Dobies,
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 Dobbies, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current Mayor of Jackson, Michigan to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Mayor of Jackson, Michigan, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working with city council members to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy. On the economy, I like on how you support expanding job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work-force and support the need to increase the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live. Supporting funds for 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 working to provide funds to help improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. On public safety, I like on how you push for more community policing to have law enforcement officers engage with the community to reduce tensions, require body cameras on police officers to reduce misconduct, and work on push for more bike lanes to help protect people who ride bicycles from getting hurt by vehicles. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Jackson, Michigan is how you work with community organizations to expand services to help homeless people get the supplies they need, express the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppression, and advocate for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or who can’t afford get shelter.
Mayor Dobbies, 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 current Mayor of Jackson, Michigan 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, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society.
