U.S. Rep. John Dingell Glad to Have Wyandotte Back in His District

The 113th Congress was sworn into office on Thursday in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Rep. John Dingell's name has been synonymous with Downriver for decades. 

In 2003, however, because of redistricting, a section of Downriver — including Wyandotte — was removed from Dingell's district.

And now, due to redistricting again, Wyandotte is back in Dingell's newly redrawn 12th Congressional District.

After being sworn into office Thursday, Dingell released this written statement:

"Wyandotte and all of our Downriver communities are so important to our state and our region, I'm glad to have them back within our district's official lines. I've always worked hard for, and considered these areas to be part of my home, and I'm honored to continue to have that same opportunity in this 113th Congress."

According to Christopher Schuler, Dingell's communications director, the congressman formerly represented Wyandotte from 1965 through the end of 2002.

I represent the fourth generation of Dearborn residents to greatly benefit from the representative leadership of John Dingell. My great-grandparents were immigrants to SE Michigan who became successful small business owners. Along with my grandfather, they thrived in East Dearborn for over 60 years. My mother is currently operating a business in Congressman Dingell’s district. Recently, I was honored by Congressman Dingell as a 2013 nominee for an appointment to the United States Naval Academy. I wish to congratulate him on his reelection. On behalf of my family, I thank him for his service to our nation, while being personally and deeply honored for his consideration. EH
