U.S. Senators respond to retirement of Rep. Sandy Levin

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senators in Michigan are reacting to the news that Congressman Sandy Levin (MI-09) will not seek reelection.

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released the following statement regarding Sandy Levin saying:

“For 35 years, the people of Southeast Michigan have known that they could count on Sandy Levin to fight for them in Washington. Every day Sandy has made the people of Michigan his top priority: expanding access to health care, protecting Social Security and unemployment insurance, championing American jobs and workers, supporting our American auto industry, and protecting our Great Lakes. He’s also been a wonderful partner and a true friend. It has been my honor to work alongside Sandy Levin on behalf of Michigan families.”

U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) also released a statement on the retirement of U.S. Representative Sandy Levin saying:

“Sandy Levin is someone who has been a mentor and role model for me, and his dedication to public service will be missed in the halls of Congress and across Southeast Michigan. If there is one lasting legacy Sandy will leave behind, it is his steadfast commitment to improving the lives of working people. Whether it was fighting for workers affected by trade deals or protecting Medicare and Social Security from cuts and privatization, Sandy always put people first. The embodiment of a true public servant, Sandy fought for better jobs, improved health care and a secure retirement for everyone, and I wish him the best as he moves to the next chapter in his life.”
