Dear Honorable Jones,
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. Honorable Jones, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as 29th Attorney General of Idaho and as Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 29th Attorney General of Idaho from 1983-1991, I truly appreciated on how you were a 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. Also on Civil Rights, I liked on how you had the courage to prosecute the KKK including white supremacy groups. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working with law enforcement to expand on resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and expressing along with supporting the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence including cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also on the environment, I was amazed on how you went after electric utilities to help protect the Snake River from being polluted. Another thing that I liked about your work when you served as Attorney General of Idaho was you went after industries that illegally polluted the environment or violate environmental protection laws to help reduce pollution while improve public health, investigate public officials who are corrupt or accept illegal bribes to reduce corruption, and prosecute insurance companies that commit fraud. When you served as Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court from 2005-2017, I like on how continued to support civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, pushing for strict sentencing for people who commit hate crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and expressing the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination. Also on the Idaho Supreme Court I like on how you continued to support criminal justice reform and support protections of civil liberties like the fourth amendment to help protect people from unreasonable searches. After you left public service, I like on how you as a moderate Republican to continue to support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, advocate for criminal justice reform, and express the need to protect fundamental civil liberties from being violated.
Honorable Jones, 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. Recently, I read a short article of you endorsing Joe Biden, Democrat for the 2020 Presidential election and explained about the need for criminal justice reform. Also I enjoy reading some of your opinion articles about the importance of civil liberties, the importance of reducing corruption in the judicial system, and many others. Your role as 29th Attorney General of Idaho, former Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court, and as a moderate Republican gives me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, and criminal justice reform. My future goal is to someday work in these areas 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.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference in the judicial system. I’m very proud on how you 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 about your work, and continue to learn different subjects. Also I’m very proud on how you are a moderate Republican on supporting common sense ideas when your own party gets too extreme. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
