Dear Mayor Tran,
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, expand on social justice to improve communities, and many others. Mayor Tran, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 40th Mayor of Kaysville, Utah to be very inspiring to me.
In January 2022, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Asian American woman to be elected to become Mayor of Kaysville, Utah. In your current role as 40th Mayor of Kaysville, Utah, 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 city council members to expand on laws to combat against hate crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I like on how you support expansion of jobs training programs to help train youth including workers develop or improve on their work skills and heavily advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live. Supporting funds for 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 expanding funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to help protect the environment. On social justice issues, I like on how you are currently working with other non profit organizations to find ways to help assist people who are low income or who are homeless get the essential items they need, support the idea of requiring police officers to wear body cameras to help reduce police misconduct, and expanding on drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse. On education, I like on how you support funds to help improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn and expand on tutoring services to have tutors help students on their assignments or literacy. Another thing that I like about your work as Mayor of Kaysville, Utah is how you are pushing for funds to help restore or repair historical site including attractions to make learning a better tool while improve on tourism and and express the need for ethic laws to reduce police misconduct. 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.
Mayor Tran, 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 in different social settings, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civl 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 role as 40th Mayor of Kaysville, Utah gives me 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 make communities a better place, and many others.
