2024 Gala Honored Guest Speaker: Senator Debbie Stabenow

We are thrilled to announce that Senator Debbie Stabenow will be joining us at the 2024 Spring Gala.

Senator Stabenow has represented Michigan for 45 years as both a House Representative and U.S. Senator. Last year, she announced she would be retiring, and the Kent Dems are truly honored to have her joining us at the gala this year to celebrate her accomplishments and service to our great state and nation.

Throughout her years in public service, Senator Stabenow has blazed trails and opened doors for women and girls. Among her many “firsts” – she was the first woman elected to the United States Senate from Michigan. 

She has persistently focused on making things in America and bringing jobs home. Because of her leadership, Michigan is well-positioned as a global leader in the clean energy economy. As the author of two landmark programs transforming the health of our Great Lakes, there is no greater champion for our Great Lakes, natural resources, and Michigan way of life than Senator Stabenow.

Her leadership has been characterized by an unrivaled work ethic, the ability to build bipartisan coalitions to get things done, and a commitment to public service that has set the standard for constituent service.

In The News: KCDP State Of The Union Watch Party

Last night, President Biden laid out his vision for our future. He delivered a powerful speech with great ideas and strong calls to action. With Vice President Harris and our Democratic Members of Congress by our side, we will continue to thrive and grow.

Thank you to our very own Scott Urbanowski and Chris Herweyer who gave interviews to Fox 17 and WWMT 3 talking about the strengths of President Biden’s speech and his administration.

We are Democrats, proud and strong. Like President Biden said: “We never back down, we never surrender.”

When we take back a majority in the House and maintain our majority in the Senate, and send President Biden and Vice President Harris back to Washington, DC this November, it will be thanks to a lot of hard work of, by, and for the people.

When we organize, we win!
