Senator Levin Motivated by Helping People

To the Editor:

Senator Carl Levin is retiring this year, but he will never be done with helping people. Senator Levin walks out of the United States Senate for the last time after a half century of doing what he did best: helping people.

I was a young radio reporter, assigned to city hall in Detroit 50 years ago, when I met him for the first time. He didn’t look like your standard politician, and he told me something I will never forget: “It’s not about me. It’s about the people I serve. That’s why I was elected.”

When he came to the Upper Peninsula a few years back, he even remembered me from so long ago.

I will never forget what he did for us.
