Carl Levin: Stars on the National Stage

In a poignant moment, the nation’s longest-serving Congressman and fellow retiree John Dingell (D-Dearborn) welcomed his long-time friend and colleague, Senator Carl Levin to Grand Hotel’s theatre as Governor Rick Snyder and Detroit Regional Chamber CEO Sandy Baruah looked on.

After the three presenters praised Senator Levin’s career, highlighting his trademark advocacy and stewardship for Michigan, the Senator Levin took the podium to share his advice for Congress and metro Detroit, with Michigan’s political, business and media leaders looking on.

Drawing on his brilliant career, Senator Levin urged the audience to disregard national and regional political lines and embrace compromise. The 79-year-old, lifelong Detroiter and former city council president, delivered his remarks in the middle of a Conference buzzing about Detroit’s resurgence. He expressed his unrelenting faith in the resilience of his home city and state with a tip of his hat to the progress made so far.

The special edition Mackinac Policy Conference Detroiter Magazine, includes a column by Congressman Dingell on Senator Levin, and quotes from select Michigan business leaders.
