Andrew Saul Levin (born August 10, 1960) is an American attorney and politician who serves as the U.S. Representative for Michigan's 9th congressional district. The district includes most of Detroit's northern and northeastern suburbs, such as Mount Clemens, Royal Oak, Clinton Township, Warren, Ferndale, Fraser, Sterling Heights, Eastpointe and St. Clair Shores. He is a member of the Democratic Party.
Andy Levin was born on August 10, 1960, to Sander Levin and Vicki Schlafer. Sander was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1982. Andy grew up with two sisters, Jennifer and Madeleine, and a brother, Matthew.
Levin graduated from Williams College with a bachelor's degree. He earned a master's degree in Asian languages and culture from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctor from Harvard Law School.
Levin was a staff attorney for the U.S. Commission on the Future of Worker-Management Relations in 1994 and worked as a trade union organizer and director. He ran as a Democrat for the 13th district seat in the Michigan State Senate in 2006. He lost the election to Republican John Pappageorge by 0.6% of the vote. After the election, he directed Voice@Work, a program seeking to expand trade union membership.
Governor Jennifer Granholm appointed Levin as deputy director in the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor, and Economic Growth (DELEG) in 2007. He oversaw the "No Worker Left Behind" program, which provided job training to unemployed workers. In 2009, Granholm named him chief workforce officer. Granholm named him acting director of DELEG in 2010, and he served in the role through the end of her administration in 2011. He founded the clean energy firm Levin Energy Partners LLC and serves as president of Lean & Green Michigan.
On November 6th, Levin defeated Republican businesswoman Candius Stearns in the November 6 general election.
