Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) issued the following statement concerning the passing of former Congressman John Dingell.

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my friend and former colleague, the former Dean of the House of Representatives, Congressman John Dingell. He was a true public servant as a World War Two veteran, and the longest serving Congressman of 59 years – devoting much of his career to improving access to health care, protecting the environment, ensuring the safety of our food supply, and providing effective oversight of the federal government. His love of country, humor, and service to others will be missed, but certainly not forgotten. My most heartfelt condolences go out to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell as well as their entire family, friends, and loved ones.  May his spirit live on through the great legacy he created,” said Bishop.
