Talk of the Town

Date: February 12, 2019

John Dingell Jr., the longest-serving member of Congress in American history who helped write most of the nation's major environmental and energy laws, died Thursday in his home state of Michigan. He was 92. Reports said he died peacefully at his home in Dearborn, with his wife, U.S. Rep. Deborah Dingell, nearby.

John Dingell was a strong supporter of the motor vehicle supplier industry. MEMA recognized his efforts with the Joseph M. Magliochetti Industry Champion Award, a special recognition given to elected officials who have shown outstanding leadership on behalf of suppliers. MEMA also honored him with a special achievement award on his retirement in 2014. The Congressman will long be remembered for his public service and his support of the supplier industry. The MEMA team joins with others around the world in sending our condolences to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and his entire family.
