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. Circuit Attorney Gardner, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as Member of the Missouri House of Representatives from the 77th district and in your current role as Circuit Attorney of St. Louis, Missouri to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Member of the Missouri House of Representatives from the 77th district from 2013-2017, I truly appreciates on how you are 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 other members of the Missouri House of Representatives to expand on laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I liked on how you support an expansion of jobs training programs to help train youth including workers to develop or improve on job 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. Supported funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraged businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and worked to push for funds to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. On education, I like on how you support funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn and push for literacy programs to help adults including students to develop reading skills to improve on comprehension.
