Dear State Representative McKean,
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, protecting the environment from pollution, and many others. State Representative McKean, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current Member of the Iowa House of Representatives from the 58th district, your role as a moderate Republican to leaving the GOP, and your advocacy to be very inspiring to me.
When you were a moderate Republican, I truly appreciate on how you were a strong 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 other members of the Iowa House of Representatives from both political parties to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I like on how you support expanding on job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work-force and advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers to afford to live. 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 pushing for funds to help expand on city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people is common sense to protect the environment. To improve education, I like on how you support funds to improve special education to help assist students with disabilities get the accommodations they need to learn, push for more after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and implement literacy programs to help students including adults develop literacy skills or improve on comprehension. On farmer’s rights, I like on how you support legislation to help protect farmers from fraud or abuse by agriculture companies. Another thing In 2019, I was proud on how you had the courage to give a speech about how the GOP got too extreme and how president elect Trump is pushing for controversial ideas and leave the party. After you left the GOP and joined the Democrats I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights, support environmental protection, and many others. As a current Democrat is how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights, support environmental protection, and many others.
State Representative McKean, 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 enjoyed watching you give a speech about why you left the GOP and explained how the GOP and President Trump are becoming controversial. Your current role as Member of the Iowa House of Representatives from the 58th district 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. I’m proud on how you had the courage to speak up against the GOP and President Trump as a moderate Republican and to switch parties. I know that it is difficult but I’m very proud on how you have good principles. Also I like on how you are working hard to continue to support civil rights, protect the environment, and many other common sense ideas. You 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 support common sense ideas, and inspiring me. please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
