Dear U.S. Senator Gregg,
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. U.S. Senator Gregg, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as 76th Governor of New Hampshire, as U.S. Senator from New Hampshire, as a moderate Republican to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 76th Governor of New Hampshire from 1989-1993, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and working with law makers to expand on laws to combat against hate-crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different. Also I liked on how you tried to push for the Equal Rights Amendment to help protect women from being discriminated based on gender even though it didn’t get passed in the state legislature. On education, I liked on how you supported funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn and expanded literacy programs to help adults including students develop or improve on literacy skills. Supporting funds for 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 providing funds to help keep parks, water resources, and coastal areas clean for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. Another thing that I liked about your work as Governor of New Hampshire was how you worked to provide funds to help restore or preserve historical sites including attractions to help make learning a better tool while improve tourism. In your role as U.S. Senator from New Hampshire from 1993-2011, I liked on how you continue to support civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights. On health care, I like on how you worked with Democrats including some moderate Republicans and President Obama to support legislation to expand funds for stem cell research to help combat against Parkinson’s disease or other diseases and The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act to help reduce the dangers of tobacco use by pushing for warning labels on tobacco products including ban the tobacco industry from using cartoons to advertise tobacco products to minors. continuing to support renewable energy resources to reduce addiction to oil with gas, pushing for more research into biofuel to help reduce CO2 emissions, and working with some Democrats including some moderate Republicans to support legislation to help protect The Great Lakes including other coastal areas from pollution are great ways to protect the environment. Another thing that I liked about your work in the U.S. Senate was how you were an advocate for the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries and tried to push for healthcare for people with disabilities including people with autism spectrum to get treatment even though the GOP rejected it. After you left public service, I like on how you continue as a moderate Republican to continue to support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, advocate for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from oppressive countries, and express the need for better environmental protection to reduce pollution.
U.S. Senator Gregg, 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 work as 76th Governor of New Hampshire and as U.S. Senator from New Hampshire 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 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 health care, and many others. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work, and continue to learn different subjects. Also I truly appreciate on how you were a moderate Republican when the GOP got 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.
