Lt. Governor Gilchrist on Passing of Former U.S. Senator Carl Levin
LANSING, Mich. - Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist today issued the following statement on the passing of former United States Senator Carl Levin.
"Senator Levin was a giant whose power and dedication was felt throughout our state. Michiganders trusted Senator Levin to get the job done, which is why they continued to send him back to Washington, D.C as our state's longest-serving senator. And throughout all of those years, Senator Levin never backed down from putting Michigan families first. There's not a single Michigander who hasn't benefited from the policies and programs that Senator Levin helped to usher through Congress. His presence will be greatly missed by the untold lives that he touched, especially the young leaders like me who he continually encouraged and supported. My heart is with his family and all of the Michiganders across the state who are mourning this tremendous loss. Senator Levin set the path for all of us to continue his great work."
