Detroit, MI – Congressman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) today released the following statement:

Dean of the U.S. House
of Representatives
John Conyers, Jr.
“I’m honored to have been able to witness President Barack Obama take the oath of office – not once, but twice - during my lifetime.  He broke barriers when he became our first African-American president and he has continued to break records throughout his presidency.

“President Obama has worked tirelessly everyday on behalf of our country. He took office at a time when our country was teetering on the edge of economic collapse. When the auto industry was on the brink of collapse, President Obama stepped in, saving millions of jobs up and down the supply chain. Under his leadership, our nation has been pulled out of the Greatest Recession since the Great Depression, more than 18 million previously uninsured Americans now have health insurance, Dodd-Frank has minimized the threats to financial stability, and he has commuted more sentences of prisoners who were victims of unjust sentencing, than any other President.

“President Obama is leaving behind a lasting legacy of greatness. Not only has he inspired generations of Americans to reach for the stars and go after their dreams, he has broken many barriers throughout his administration, continued to push limits and move our nation forward.”
