Hammoud, Dingell Hold Town Hall to Hear from Dearborn Community

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

DEARBORN — State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud (D-Dearborn) and U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) held a town hall in Dearborn yesterday to answer questions and discuss issues that matter to the community. This is the second town hall Dingell and Hammoud have teamed up on this year to provide an update on legislative issues in Washington and Lansing and hear from members of the community.

“As Congress prepares to return to Washington next week, it is critical that we hear the ideas and concerns of the people we represent,” said Dingell. “These are turbulent times, and it is important to listen, learn, address problems and come together to find solutions. From working to ensure quality affordable health care for every American, to standing up for civil rights and ensuring every individual who wants a good job can find one, we are committed to working diligently to address the issues we heard tonight. We know that we are one community and we are all in this together.”

“Getting feedback from residents is one of the most important aspects of being a legislator,” said Hammoud. “This town hall was a great way to hear concerns from the community, as well as possible solutions. I look forward to taking this input to Lansing to better serve Dearborn and the state of Michigan.”

More than 100 members of the community joined Dingell and Hammoud for the town hall tonight at Edsel Ford High School in Dearborn. For photos of the event, please click here and here.
