Mar 11, 2021

Former U.S. Senator Carl Levin talks about his decades of public service in his new memoir, Getting to the Heart of the Matter: My 36 Years in the Senate. He told Stateside about some of the early lessons he learned from his parents, who he says were also deeply committed to public service. “My mother, she said, ‘You’re no better than anybody else, but nobody else is better than you. And never forget it,’” Levin said.
