John Dingell's Long View

 

continued

Eve Silberman talked to Dingell shortly after he announced his retirement. Some of his answers have been edited for length.

Observer: What did you learn about Ann Arbor that you hadn't known before?

Dingell: I've represented Ann Arbor a dozen years. It's been a wonderful experience--I don't have any complaints.

Every time the city had need of assistance in a project, we worked with them. Not only were they extraordinarily efficient, they worked hard [and were] pleasant to deal with. It's always been a good experience all around.



Observer: You didn't find Ann Arborites to be unusually demanding?

Dingell: I always found them to be people who were trying to make things better. I never had any reason to criticize them and what they were trying to do.
