Peters Statement on Passing of John D. Dingell

WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI) released the following statement on the passing of former Dean of the House of Representatives John D. Dingell:

“Chairman Dingell was a true statesman: he embodied the values, spirit and dedication that all public servants should aspire to have. He was a mentor to me and countless others who sought to give back to their communities. I will never forget his wise counsel as I learned my way around Congress.

“Chairman Dingell will always be with us because his legacy will be forever woven into the history of Michigan and our country. Colleen and I are grieving with Debbie and the Dingell family as we remember the extraordinary Dean of the House. We will miss you Mr. Chairman.”
