“I join with the Washtenaw County community, Southeast Michigan and our state as a whole in celebrating and honoring Congressman John Dingell for his amazing legacy and myriad accomplishments. Since 1955, this man has participated in every major piece of legislation that has been beneficial to the middle class, working families and anyone who is a minority in this country. He’s been an advocate on countless crucial issues, including safeguarding our environment, protecting the automotive industry and health care access. I have personally benefited from his wisdom, and his mentorship. I’m so proud to call him my friend.”
