Congressman Dan Kildee represents Michigan’s Fifth Congressional District, which encompasses Flint, Saginaw, and Bay City.  Before serving in Congress, Rep.

He also founded Michigan’s first land bank, the Genesee County Land Bank. He sits on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, and serves in leadership as Chief Deputy Whip. 

Rep. Kildee has been a JStreetPAC endorsee since 2014 and is a champion of J Street’s issues on the Hill.

He was an early cosponsor of H.Res. 326, which gets Congress on the record reaffirming support for the two-state solution and opposing annexation and settlement expansion.
