Sen. Elizabeth Warren Endorses Rep. Andy Levin in New 11th District
January 26, 2022
“I’m proud to endorse my good friend Rep. Andy Levin for reelection in Michigan’s new 11th District,” said Senator Warren. “He brings so much powerfully important experience to Congress — from union organizing and workforce policy to green energy entrepreneurship and human rights advocacy. He fights from the heart, he knows how to lift up working families, and I look forward to continuing to serve alongside him.”
“Senator Warren’s endorsement is an incredible honor, as is working alongside her to create bold and courageous policies to tackle our most pressing problems,” said Congressman Levin. “Together, we are fighting for good jobs, for our one precious Earth and for the rights and dignity of all. This mission has never felt more urgent, and I’m ready to continue this work on behalf of my home of Oakland County and the American people.”
As members of their respective Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Subcommittees, Senator Warren and Congressman Levin partnered to provide oversight of then-Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and to propose a national contact tracing and vaccine deployment workforce at the onset of the pandemic. Together, they have authored the BUILD GREEN Infrastructure and Jobs Act to jumpstart the transition to all electric public vehicles and rail and the Buy Green Act to spur innovation and boost demand for American-made clean energy products.
To date, Congressman Levin has received the endorsement of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE); Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU); Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA); Seafarers International Union (SIU); United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 951; UNITE HERE Local 24; Planned Parenthood Action Fund; Future Generations; Oakland County Commissioner Emeritus Mattie McKinney-Hatchett (D-Pontiac); Oakland County Commissioners Penny Luebs (D-Clawson), Gary McGillivray (D-Madison Heights) and Charlie Cavell (D-Ferndale); Mayors Tim Greimel (Pontiac), Mike Fournier (Royal Oak), Roslyn Grafstein (Madison Heights), Mike Webb (Hazel Park), Dan Terbrack (Berkley), Bob Paul (Huntington Woods), Bret Scott (Pleasant Ridge); and the family of Danny Fenster in Huntington Woods.
