DEARBORN – Democratic Rep. Debbie Dingell of Michigan’s 12th Congressional District recently applauded President Joe Biden’s administration for its appointment of Ahmad Ramadan to be a Legislative Officer in the Department of Labor.
According to Dingell, Ramadan will become the first Arab American to serve in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs.
“Ahmad Ramadan brought more than a powerful voice to our office, he brought a compassionate, deep understanding of his community and the constituents he served,” said Dingell in a statement announcing Ramadan’s appointment on Monday.
“For two years, he worked as our Constituent Services Representative and Grant Manager, but he constantly broadened his responsibilities when a constituent, colleague, or friend needed his help. Ahmad will also be the first Arab American to serve in the Office of Congressional and Intergovernmental Affairs and I have no doubt he will continue to build broad coalitions throughout our federal government. Selfishly, I am sad to lose such a trusted advisor, but I am excited to see what he can accomplish as a member of the Biden Administration and a public servant for our nation.”
Ramadan told Local 4 News he feels blessed for all the love and messages he has received following the announcement.
“I genuinely couldn’t have done it without the support of my family, friends, and this incredible community. Your love, kindness, and support mean the world to me. It is with tremendous gratitude to both Rep. Debbie Dingell and my colleagues that I look back on my two years as a member of team Dingell. Your guidance, friendship, and empathy means more than I can ever express and I’m forever grateful. We have a lot of work to do, and I can’t wait to get started. I’m honored to serve in the Biden administration and hope to make you proud. I can’t wait to celebrate the success and appointments of many more individuals in the near future,” said Ramadan.
