Dear State Board of Pardons and Paroles:

I am writing in support of Ms. XXXX’s application for a pardon. I have known her for X years. I was Ms. XXXX’s manager when we worked together at the XXXX Company (list how you personally know the applicant).

I have had the opportunity to talk to Ms. XXXX about the mistakes she has made in the past and she has demonstrated that she has changed (write what you know and feel about the applicant). Ms. XXXX has been a responsible employee. She was never late; was polite to customers; and worked hard (write about what you have observed).

Unfortunately, Ms. XXXX was laid off recently and is having trouble finding a new job. I hope the Board will consider granting her a pardon to improve her chances.

Sincerely,

XXXX
