Dear State Representative Luke,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American 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, improve social justice to make communities a better place, and many others. State Representative Luke, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 25th district to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 25th district, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights I truly appreciate 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 state legislatures to expand legislation to help combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. Support expanding on job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills, advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help minimum wage workers afford to live, and support legislation to provide state money to help small businesses including restaurants get help during COVID-19 pandemic is common sense to improve the economy. On education, I like on how you support funds to improve special education to help students with disabilities get the accommodations to help assist them to learn and support more literacy programs to help youth including adults develop or improve on their reading skills including comprehension. Your approach to protect the environment like support funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encourage businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and support funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense. Also on social justice, I like on how you support expansion of programs to help the homeless including people who are low income or are poor to get supplies along with shelter, advocate for the need for laws to investigate law enforcement when they commit police misconduct, and support programs to help provide nutrition to people who are low income and children who can’t afford a meal in school to help them stay healthy. Another thing that I like about your work as Member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 5th district is how you are a strong advocate for the need for ethics reform like a ban on gifts to staff members who work for public officials including public officials from lobbying groups to reduce corruption, push for legislation to help victims of human trafficking get resources to deal with their trauma, and push for better health care services for people who are low income or who have pre-existing conditions. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate including support Asian Americans rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, express the need for funds to help repair the Asian American community including their businesses, emphasize the need for educational awareness about Asian American culture including history, and many others.
State Representative Luke, 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. Being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because some Asians and some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different from them or not meeting their standards. Also your role as an Asian and being an advocate along with a supporter of Asians with disabilities’ rights and Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights gives me confidence about being an Asian American with a disability when there are challenges. Your current role as Member of the Hawaii House of Representatives from the 25th district 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, expand on social justice to improve communities, and many others. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for December 15th. My birthday is December 3rd.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society.I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, help the Asian American community, and many others. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn about your work, be confident about being an Asian American, 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 work hard to make a great difference for society.
