(STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.) – Retired Macomb County Clerk Carmella Sabaugh endorsed Andy Levin for the 9th Congressional District on Tuesday, saying Levin is the leader the district needs.
“This is not a time for politics as usual. We need someone like Andy Levin who has really gone out in the world and created organizations and programs that have changed people’s lives,” Sabaugh said. “There are other good people in this race, but when it comes to the kind of bold leadership we need in the next Congress, Andy stands alone.”
Levin is a successful entrepreneur, union organizer and government leader. Throughout his life Levin has created programs that have had a positive and lasting impact on countless Michiganders. One such program, No Worker Left Behind, put 152,000 unemployed and underemployed Michigan workers back to school during the Great Recession.
Sabaugh said it is this spirit and commitment to the people of Michigan that makes Levin the right person to represent the state’s 9th Congressional District.
“I came up in the rough and tumble politics of Warren, and I feel like we need someone really strong to deal with all the nonsense and worse that’s going on in Washington,” Sabaugh said.
Sabaugh served as Macomb County Clerk from 1992 to 2016. Prior to her work at the county level, Sabaugh was elected Warren City Clerk. She also served on the Warren City Council.
“I’m so honored to have the support and trust of Carmella Sabaugh, who dedicated her career to serving the people of Macomb County,” Levin said. “She exemplifies what it takes to be a strong leader.”
Levin has also been endorsed by former U.S. Rep. David Bonior and state Rep. Henry Yanez.
