Pathways for Bipartisanship with U.S. Representatives Debbie Dingell & Fred Upton

Join us the afternoon of April 8th at 3:00 PM for two congressional updates and Q&A sessions with U.S. Representatives Debbie Dingell (D-MI 12th District) and Fred Upton (R-MI 6th District).

During this virtual event, Representative Upton will provide an update on his priorities for Michigan, including his work in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. Representative Dingell will also provide an update on her concurrent work on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Natural Resources. In this joint panel, both representatives will discuss present opportunities to work across the aisle in bipartisan decision-making among the current political vitriol and economic climate. Students will be given the opportunity to ask questions to both speakers on issues of bipartisanship, their joint efforts in the House, their commitment to their constituents in Michigan, and future opportunities for collaboration and compromise.

This event will be held virtually on April 8th at 3:00pm ET through Zoom. This webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Once you've registered, the zoom link and information will be sent to your email. Please contact msolom@umich.edu if you have any additional questions.

Speaker Bio:
U.S. Representative Fred Upton, U.S. House of Representatives
Congressman Fred Upton is proud to represent the common-sense values of Southwest Michigan’s Sixth Congressional District. A diverse section of the state that stretches from the shores of Lake Michigan, the Sixth District is home to key industries that range from agriculture to auto parts manufacturing to high-tech biomedical innovation centers. It includes all of Berrien, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph and Van Buren counties, and most of Allegan County. Prior to his election to Congress, Fred worked for President Ronald Reagan in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). While at OMB, he learned from President Reagan’s example that it does not matter who gets the credit, as long as the job gets done. That has been Fred’s approach since he was first elected to Congress in 1986 and continues today. Fred holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Michigan. He and his wife, Amey, have two adult children.
