Dear State Auditor Sand,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, environment, and ethics 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 ethics reform to reduce corruption, and many others. State Auditor Sand, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 33rd State Auditor of Iowa to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 33rd State Auditor of Iowa, , I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, expressing the need for women to have equal pay, and supporting the need to strengthen our office to help combat against discrimination to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I like on your advocacy for the need for more job training programs to help train youth including workers and work with small businesses including local businesses to help them be protected from cyber attacks. On public safety, I liked on how you worked with schools to stop unnecessary collection of student social security numbers to help protect student’s privacy, establish a website to help track law enforcement’s record of misconduct to the public to help protect them from abuse of the law enforcement, and be a strong advocate for protecting people’s right to privacy on social media. Your approach on ethics reform like push for a ban on gifts from lobbyist or lobbing groups to staff members of the Iowa State Auditor, pushing for court reform to make sure that taxpayer money is being spent for things like improve court system to help victims of crime get help on reduce their trauma, and increase the fraud unit to investigate public officials or insurance companies along with financial institution that are committing fraud against people is common sense to reduce corruption including making sure that tax payers money isn’t being wasted. Another thing that I like about your role as State Auditor is how you are a strong advocate for the need for campaign finance reform to help reduce dark money from lobbying groups to political candidates to reduce corruption in elections, work with both political parties to increase more funds to improve cyber security in order to protect citizens form cyber attacks, and be a continuous strong supporter for the need to improve ethics reform to reduce corruption in government along with businesses.
State Auditor Sand, 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. Also your work as 33rd State Auditor of Iowa gives me motivates me to continue to learn history and social justice. Another thing to add is that your work as a state auditor helps me to develop interest in learning the importance of ethics reform to help reduce corruption in government. Also in ethics reform, I like learning the ideas like have campaign finance reform to reduce dark money from lobbying groups, have disclosure laws to give the public on who there public official is receiving money from, ban gifts to public officials from lobbyist, and many others. My future goal is to someday work in history or social justice to help emphasize the need for Civil Rights to be strong to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, have ethics reform to reduce corruption, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in your current position. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to push for common sense reforms like improve Civil Rights, and push for ethics reform.
