WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow released the following statement on the passing of former Congressman John Conyers Jr.


“Congressman John Conyers spent his entire life working for the people of Michigan. From serving in our armed forces, to leading the fight for civil rights and representing Detroit in Congress for more than 50 years, John was consistently at the forefront of the critical issues impacting families. Throughout his lifetime of service, he never lost sight of the people he represented.  My thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this difficult time.”
