Dear Honorable Fisher,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have strong interest in learning history, social justice, environment, and criminal justice reform. 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 Fisher, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as Member of Ohio Senate from the 25th district and 44th Attorney General of Ohio and as 64th Lieutenant Governor of Ohio to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Member of Ohio Senate from the 25th district from 1983-1990, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights and supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy. On 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 them prepare for the work force and advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live. On education, I liked on how you supported funds to improve special education to help provide accommodations they need to learn and pushed for more tutoring services to help students get help on learning. Supporting renewable energy resources to reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and working with other state legislatures to provide funds to improve city services including government services to clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. In your role as 44th Attorney General of Ohio from 1991-1995, I liked on how you continue to be 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 violate civil rights legislation or practice different forms of discrimination. Pushing for drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, supporting along with advocating for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail, and expanding programs to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma is common sense for criminal justice reform. Another thing that I liked about your work as Attorney General of Ohio was how you investigated public officials including law enforcement that accepted illegal bribes or committed misconduct to reduce corruption, went after industries that illegally polluted the environment including violated environment protection laws to help protect the environment, and prosecuted insurance companies along with financial institutions that committed fraud. when you served as 64th Lieutenant Governor of Ohio form 2007-2011 I really liked on how you worked with Governor Ted Strickland on expanding civil rights to help reduce discrimination, advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, protecting the environment from pollution, and many others.
Honorable Fisher, 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 Member of Ohio Senate from the 25th district, 44th Attorney General of Ohio, and as 64th Lieutenant Governor of Ohio help give 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, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for August 7th.
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, expand on criminal justice reform, and many others. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work, and continue to 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 advocate for common sense ideas to help our country.
