Senator Stabenow Statement on Passing of Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, today released the following statement on the passing of Toledo, Ohio Mayor D. Michael Collins.

“I am saddened to hear about the passing of Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins. Mayor Collins was a champion for the City of Toledo and his leadership will be missed. I had the pleasure of seeing Mayor Collins in December when he testified before the Senate Agriculture Committee and again last month in Toledo to announce a new partnership to clean up Lake Erie. Each time I had the opportunity to work with him, his passion for his constituents and the City was so evident.  My thoughts and prayers are extended to his wife Sandy and his entire family during this hard time.”
