Detroit Regional Chamber Vice President of Government Affairs on Democratic Primary for 14th Congressional District

DETROIT, August 8, 2012 – Today, Detroit Regional Chamber Vice President of Government Affairs Brad Williams issued the following statement on the result of the Democratic primary election in the 14th Congressional District:

“Congressman Peters earned a hard fought victory that speaks to our confidence in his ability to represent our region and state. With his track record of supporting good public policy, the Chamber believes he will continue to work on common-sense solutions that make Southeast Michigan more economically competitive and improve our quality of life.

In applauding Congressman Peters’ victory, we want to recognize Congressman Clarke for his service to our community. He has been a relentless advocate for Detroit whose leadership and vision have been critical to moving our city and region forward during some difficult times. Unfortunately, in this case redistricting, pitted two well respected incumbents against each other.  We regret losing Congressman Clarke as a voice in Washington, but look forward to working with him to advance our region in the future.”
