Senator Stabenow Statement on Congressman Dan Kildee Retirement

Thursday, November 16, 2023

“Congressman Dan Kildee embodies everything we want our public servants to be. His love for his hometown of Flint, his district, and the state of Michigan is so clear and shows up in all of his work in Congress. During the water crisis in Flint, he worked around the clock to make sure families had resources, clean drinking water, and access to care. He has always fought to strengthen his communities, create good-paying jobs through new clean energy opportunities, and protect our Great Lakes. Even before he served in Congress, he was focused on improving neighborhoods, creating Michigan’s first land bank, and bringing life-changing investments to Flint.

“Michigan will miss his leadership in Congress. I’m wishing my dear friend a wonderful retirement with his family. Enjoy the grandkids!”
