Dear Honorable Sandoval,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a huge interest in studying 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. Honorable Sandoval, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as in public service to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 30th Attorney General of Nevada from 2003-2005, I liked on how you went after public officials who were corrupt or accepted illegal bribes to reduce corruption, prosecuted people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different from being harm, and investigated public places that practice different forms of discrimination or violate civil rights legislation. In your service as U.S. District Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada from 2005-2009, I like on how you continue to support civil rights and support along with advocate for criminal justice reform like support drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, express the need for more funds for DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence including cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail, and work with the U.S. District Court of Nevada to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma. In January 2011, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Hispanic to become the Governor of Nevada. When you served as 29th Governor of Nevada from 2011-2019, 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 state legislatures in both political parties to expand laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. Funding special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn, implementing after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and expanding training services to help prepare teachers including school staff to improve schools is common sense for education reform. On the economy I liked on how you created more job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work skills. To protect the environment, I like on how you support funds for renewable energy resources to reduce addiction to oil with gas, expand funds to local cities including city services to help clean parks including water resources, and encourage businesses including industries to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution. I was very proud on how you had the courage to implement Medicaid expansion to help people with pre-exiting conditions or who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need and heavily support implementing health care assistance for people with disabilities including autism so they can get help on their disability when both political parties including the GOP weren’t supportive of it. Another thing that I liked about your work as Governor of Nevada was how you strongly oppose the dumping of nuclear waste on Yucca Mountain to protect public health while protect the environment, reduce your pay raise to help balance the budget, support women’s health care including their rights from being weakened, provide funds to restore historical sites including attractions to make learning a better place while improve tourism, and support immigration reform to help protect immigrants, refugees, and Dreamers form being oppressed. After you left public service, I am very grateful on how you are a moderate Republican on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, continuing to support environmental protection, advocate for immigration reform, and many others.
Honorable Sandoval, 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. Also with my struggles on autism I face different challenges is when other people, some of my friends, both political parties, and many others aren’t supportive of people with disabilities rights or use bullying as way to scare me. Your heavily commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role in public service and as a moderate Republican 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 made a great difference in public service. I’m very proud on how you worked hard to support civil rights, environmental protection, immigration reform, and many other common sense ideas. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, learn about your public service and to continue to learn history including social justice. 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. Also congrats on becoming the President of Reno, Nevada.
