Dear Attorney General Brown,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, 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. Attorney General Brown, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work in public service and as current 47th Attorney General of Maryland to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as Member of the Maryland House of Delegates from the 25th district from 1999-2007, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, working with members of the Maryland House of Delegates to expand on laws to combat against hate crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different, and supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy. On the economy, I liked on how you supported funds for job training programs to help train youth including workers to develop or improve on their skills for the work force and heavily advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage afford to live. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil including gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and expanding on funds to help improve services to clean parks, water resources, and coastal areas to make them safe for people to use is common sense to protect the environment. In your role as 8th Lieutenant Governor of Maryland from 2007-2015, I liked on how you worked with Governor Martin O’Malley on supporting civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, push for funds to expand on special education to assist students with disabilities to get accommodations they need to learn including tutoring services to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors, and pushed for improvements on veteran’s care like expand on health care services for disabled veterans including people who served our country. As Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Maryland’s 4th district from 2017-2023, I like on how you were a continuous strong supporter along with an advocate of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, heavily oppose the Keystone Pipeline to help protect public lands including Native American reservations from toxic spills, and heavily advocate for the need to reduce police brutality. In January 2023, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first African American to be elected to become the Attorney General of Maryland. In your current role as 47th Attorney General of Maryland, I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice different forms of discrimination or violate civil rights legislation. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and pushing along with expressing the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence or cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also on criminal justice reform, I like on how to implemented wrongful conviction unit to help investigate any cases or trials that have misconduct in order to reduce sending people who are falsely accused of a crime that they didn’t commit, launch investigation into law enforcement that do misconduct or use police brutality against innocent citizens or minorities, and working with other mental health services to better improve services to help assist people who struggle with mental health or have a mental illness get help. I like on how you are also an advocate for the need for social workers to be on call with law enforcement or in trials to help reduce tensions between the community. Another thing that I like about your work as Attorney General of Maryland is how you launch investigation into public officials including law enforcement who accept illegal bribes or do misconduct to reduce corruption, went after industries that illegally pollute the environment or violate environmental protection laws, and create educational awareness about the need to reduce drug abuse along with gun violence.
Attorney General Brown, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advanced subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts in different settings, 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 in public service and as 47th Attorney General of Maryland helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, social justice, and criminal justice reform. 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 criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
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, 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.
