Longest-serving member of the house retiring. (Dingell)
John Dingell of suburban Detroit (Downriver suburbs and Ann Arbor) is retiring, after serving since the 50s. His father served in the seat before him and probably his wife will run for the seat now. If she doesn't, his son might-son being a family court judge whom I like a great deal, in a work sense.
Unless the GOP has a good challenger in mind. All the media people around here keep calling it a "safe democratic district".
Oh my God! Happy memories from Ann Arbor!
Thank you Noonwitch for the happy memories of SE MI. I grew up in A2 and know a little about Dingell.I remember a column that Chuck Moss wrote about Rep. Dingell back in 1988. He coined the nickname "Dingellfritz" and I never heard that name again after that. Yes I remember the crazy stuff that goes in in Detroit. It broke my heart to hear when Detroit went broke in 2013. I hope things get better for them.
