Dear Attorney General Ford,
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, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Attorney General Ford, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served in the Nevada state legislature and as current 34th Attorney General of Nevada to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Member of the Nevada Senate from the 11th district from 2013-2018, I truly appreciated 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 state legislatures from both political parties to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. To help improve the economy, I liked on how you supported an expansion of jobs-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help prepare for the work force and advocated for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers to afford to live. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging industries to use energy efficient products to help reduce pollution while reduce high energy cost, and working with other state legislatures to help expand funds to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. In January 2019, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first African American to become Attorney General of Nevada. In your current role as 34th Attorney General of Nevada, I truly appreciate on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice different forms of discrimination or violate civil rights legislation. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need 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 with supporting for more funds to help improve forensic science including DNA testing to help solve cases including evidence efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also on criminal justice reform, I really like on how you support expanding mental health services to help people who struggle with mental health get the care they need, support body cameras on law enforcement officers to reduce police misconduct, and work to expand testing for rape kits to help reduce sexual assaults including allow victims of rape track the kit to see if it has been tested. Another thing that I like about your work as Attorney General of Nevada is how you prosecuted public officials that are corrupt or accept illegal bribes or are corrupt to reduce corruption, went after industries that illegally polluted the environment or violate environmental protection laws to help protect the environment while improve public health, and investigated financial institutions including insurance companies that are practice or committing different forms of fraud to help protect people including taxpayers.
Attorney General Ford, 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 former Member of the Nevada Senate from the 11th district and as current 34th Attorney General of Nevada gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is t someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, protect the environment from pollution, 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, push for criminal justice reform, standing up for victim’s rights, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work in public service, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great impact on society through your role as Attorney General of Nevada.
