U.S Representative Sandy Levin (D-MI) announced on Saturday, December 2, 2017, that he will not seek re-election in 2018. This is according to a statement from Sandy Levin's office.
Levin has represented the state of Michigan in the United States House of Representatives since 1983. He has been a strong supporter of Israel and supported the nuclear deal with Iran.
According to a press release from Sander Levin. “I have been incredibly honored to serve the people of Michigan in Congress and to work on so many issues important to our communities, our state, and our nation. I have tried to live up to the trust given to me by my constituents by following the values of my parents and family and by acting on what I believe after digging deeply into the facts and consulting broadly.
I now want to share these same values in ways other than being an elected official. Working to renew our confidence in promoting positive change, especially among our next generation of leaders, will be a particular interest. I am therefore looking forward to joining the University of Michigan’s Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy after my tenure in Congress concludes. But for the next year, much work remains in Congress, especially as it relates to important tax, trade and health policies.”
