MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan Executive Director Lonnie Scott released the following statement on the passing of the Honorable John Dingell.
“John Dingell has long been one of my political role models from the time I was old enough to understand the political process. He is and always will be one of the true statesmen of our state and country. The United States is a better place because of his unbridled dedication to public service. Our deepest condolences go out to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and the Dingell family during this difficult time. It’s hard to find the words to convey just how much John Dingell meant to our state and political discourse. His belief in public service was only matched by his sharp wit, both of which provided a sterling example of how everyone should strive to do good for those around them, not just for themselves. Rest in power, Dean. Our state, our country, and Twitter will not be the same without you and we thank you for all you have done.”
