The Debbie Dingell for Congress campaign has released a second television advertisement focusing on Debbie’s accessibility and commitment to work hard on behalf of residents in Michigan’s 12th District if elected to Congress. The advertisement features people who know Debbie commenting on the qualities that make her their choice for Congress.

The advertisement entitled, “Coffee Shop,” began airing over the weekend on cable television systems in the district. It will air through the August 5 Primary. The ad features members of Debbie’s coffee group talking about her candor, her accessibility, her willingness to listen, and her commitment to hard work. The ad was filmed at Panera Cares in Dearborn where the group currently meets.

The advertisement will air along with the campaign’s first ad that features people citing Debbie’s energy to describe her. That ad highlights her fight to include women in federally-funded health care studies and her leadership on a state task force to reduce infant mortality rates. If elected to Congress, Debbie will fight for manufacturing jobs for southeast Michigan, workplace fairness and access to quality, affordable health care.

Debbie Dingell is President of D2 Strategies and chair of the Wayne State University (WSU) Board of Governors, to which she was elected statewide in 2006. An active civic and community leader, she is a recognized national advocate for women and children.

Debbie is immediate past chair of the Manufacturing Initiative at the American Automotive Policy Council. For more than 30 years she served one of Michigan’s largest employers, the General Motors (GM) Corporation, where she was President of the GM Foundation and a senior executive responsible for public affairs.

Her public service career includes the Democratic National Committee, of which she is a member and the Metropolitan Affairs Coalition, a statewide organization she chairs that brings business, labor and government together to find commonality on issues. A known “bridge-builder,” she continues to promote and lead efforts toward greater understanding among people of differing points of views and backgrounds.

Debbie resides in Dearborn with her husband Congressman John D. Dingell of Michigan. She holds both a B.S.F.S. in Foreign Services and an M.S. in Liberal Studies from Georgetown University.
