DETROIT - Earlier today, Senator Stabenow received the endorsement of the Detroit Regional Chamber, an important voice for businesses and, with over 20,000 members and affiliates, one of the largest chambers of commerce in the country.
In endorsing Senator Stabenow, Brad Williams, the Chamber's vice president of government relations, said “Debbie Stabenow has been a tremendous champion for Michigan in Congress." Williams went on to say "Senator Stabenow’s leadership in Washington has helped move Michigan in a positive direction during very difficult times."
STATEMENT FROM SENATOR STABENOW:
“The Detroit Regional Chamber has been a great partner in working to revitalize our auto industry, expand exports, and attract new jobs of the future into our region, and I am honored to receive their endorsement,' said Senator Stabenow. “I look forward to continuing to work with the Chamber to support economic development and job creation in the region and across Michigan.”
Senator Stabenow has worked in partnership with the Chamber and community leaders to produce concrete results for Metro Detroit – the growth and expansion of Eastern Market; a new regional office of the Export-Import Bank; bringing Whole Foods to the City of Detroit; the opening of the nation’s first U.S. Patent office outside of DC; bringing GE’s Advanced Manufacturing and Software Technology Center to SE Michigan which is creating 1,400 new jobs at the center and 1,600 across the state; and the expansion of community health centers in Detroit-- to name a recent few.
Senator Stabenow has had a strong working relationship with the staff, leadership and members of the Chamber, going back to when she chaired the Small Business Committee in the State House. She was endorsed by the Chamber in her 2006 re-election and in this year’s primary.
