Dear U.S. Attorney Brubacher,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history and criminal justice reform. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. U.S. attorney Brubacher, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Jackson County, Missouri and as current U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas to be very inspiring me.
When you served as Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Jackson County, Missouri from 2016-2022, I truly appreciated on how you were a 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. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, expanding resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and supporting along with expressing the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence or cases efficiently to reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. In March 2023, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first woman to be U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas. In your current role as U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas, I truly appreciate on how you are a continuous supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights and criminal justice reform. On criminal justice reform, I like on how you expanded wrongful conviction unit to investigate any cases that had misconduct or prosecution misconduct that resulted in a innocent person being in jail for a crime that they didn’t commit and implementing mental health unit to help train members of the U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas to find ways to help people with a mental illness or who struggle with mental health to get help instead of strict sentencing. Another thing that I like about your work as U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas is how you went after public officials or law enforcement who accept illegal bribes or other forms of corruption, launched investigation into law enforcement that do police misconduct or commit illegal police brutality on civilians, and prosecuted industries that illegally polluted the environment including violated environmental protection laws.
U.S. Attorney Brubacher, 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. I have enjoyed visiting Kansas a few times where I got to see The Brown vs Board of Education historic site to learn the history of the case, see the Kansas Museum to learn the history of Kansas, and many others. Your role as former Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in the Jackson County, Missouri and as current U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas helps give me motivation to continue to learn history 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, have 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, expand while advocate for 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. I was wondering if you could share with me on what it is like being U.S. Attorney for the District of Kansas and some of your achievements. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate and push for common sense ideas.
