Dear Honorable Rendell,
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. Honorable Rendell, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as 45th Governor of Pennsylvania to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 45th Governor of Pennsylvania from 2003-2011, 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 compete in the economy, and working with state legislatures to combat against hate-crime. Also on Civil Rights I liked on how you tried to push for an Equal Rights Amendment to help protect women from being discriminated based on gender even though the state legislature with both political parties weren’t supportive of it. On the economy, I really liked on how you worked to expand on jobs-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop or improve on work skills to help prepare for the work force and advocate for the need to raise 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, working with both political parties in the state legislature on expanding funds to help clean parks including water resources from being polluted while make them safe for people to use, and implementing more educational awareness programs to help educate people about the importance of protecting the environment is common sense to protect the environment. to improve education, I liked your approach like increase fund to improve special education to help students with disabilities to get accommodations they need to learn, expand on after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors or to keep students from turning to crime, and implement literacy programs to help students including adults improve on their comprehension skills. On healthcare, I really liked on how you supported legislation to make prescription drugs cheap for older residents, expanded health care for children who have pre-existing conditions, and supported improving mental health services to help people who struggle with mental health or people with disabilities get counseling. Another thing that I like about your work when you served as Governor of Pennsylvania was how you provided funds to help restore historical sites including attractions to help make learning a better place while improve on tourism and expand on drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse.
Honorable Rendell, 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. I have enjoyed visiting Pennsylvania many times and I love visiting Philly. In Philadelphia, I enjoy seeing the Betsy Ross House to learn how she made the American Flag, saw the Ben Franklin historical site to learn about Ben Franklin’s life, and The National Constitution Center to learn about the history of the U.S. Constitution along with the importance of the need for civil liberties. Your role as 45th Governor of Pennsylvania gives me motivation to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference when you served in public service. I’m very proud on how you worked hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, improve education, expand on healthcare, and many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, visit Pennsylvania, and learn different subjects. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to work hard and advocate for common sense ideas.
