Retiring Congressman John Dingell headlined today's Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber lunch meeting.
Dingell says organizations like chambers of commerce are an important part of the community, offering the chance for people to speak with elected officials and make sure government is running as it should.
Dingell has announced he won't seek re-election when his current term is up. His wife, Debbie, is running to replace him in the 12th Congressional district, as is Ypsilanti resident Terry Bowman who's running as a Republican.
