2015 Commencement Speaker - Congressman Dan Kildee
Dan Kildee never stops fighting for Michigan. He knows what can be accomplished when we work together and focus on the things that really matter – jobs, a brighter future for our children and security for our parents in their retirement.
Dan has always believed that our government should be working for the people to create opportunity for all Michiganders and Americans. In Congress, despite continued partisan gridlock, he’s been a powerful force for cities like Flint, Saginaw and Bay City. In just his first months in Congress, he brought back $100 million to Michigan to help remove blighted and abandoned homes in cities like Flint, Saginaw and Detroit. He’s also championed bills to help revitalize our state’s manufacturing sector, helping to create high-skilled, high- wage jobs in Michigan that can support a family. He’s also supported the ‘Make it in America’ agenda to give tax breaks to businesses that create jobs here, in Michigan – not overseas.
In Congress, Dan has taken on several committee assignments, including on both the Budget Committee and the House Financial Services Committee. In the Democratic Caucus, he also serves as an Assistant Whip and a member of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.
Previously as County Treasurer, Dan worked to create the Genesee County Land Bank, a first of its kind in the nation. Since its creation, it has helped to keep thousands of families in their homes by preventing foreclosures, giving every family an opportunity to be successful. Immediately before Congress, he also founded and served as the president of the Center for Community Progress, which continues to help transform vacant and blighted areas into vibrant and stronger neighborhoods. Across the country, Dan’s land bank model has helped to inspire almost 100 other cities to start similar models to help create opportunity and foster development.
Dan is a lifelong Michigan resident. He and his wife of 26 years, Jennifer, currently reside in Flint Township. Dan has two children currently in college, Kenneth at the University of Michigan-Flint and Katy at Central Michigan University. Dan’s oldest son Ryan and his wife Ginger are the parents of Dan’s first and only grandchild, Caitlin.
