Speaking From The Heart: Congresswoman Debbie Dingell Addresses Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber

Lisa Barry

Local Congresswoman Debbie Dingelldelivered her 4th “State of the District” update to theAnn Arbor/Ypsilanti regional chamber luncheon Monday.

89.1 WEMU’S Lisa Barry reports she did a lot of what she said was “speaking from the heart.”

Health care, infrastructure, the environment, and cyber-security are just some of the issues discussed by 12th district congresswoman Debbie Dingell.  She said Congress is not governing the way it should be, and she’s trying to figure out “the new normal” when it comes the government.

She says it’s time for people to speak up, speak out, and work together as a community.

“I’m really worried about the fact people are trying to divide us with fear and hatred and we can’t let it.  We are Americans first and foremost,” says Dingell.

Congresswoman Dingell said Congress needs to work together on comprehensive immigration reform, adding health care is not an issue that is going away.
