Washington, D.C.  – Today, Representative Paul Mitchell (MI-10) released the following statement on the Air Force’s F-35 decision:

“Today’s announcement is far from the end of the road for Selfridge.  This process confirmed what we already knew: Selfridge is among the top five bases in the country, and it has world-class support from the surrounding community.  This was Selfridge’s centennial year, and I look forward to celebrating many more Selfridge anniversaries.  As I have long said, it is my belief that the road to military readiness runs through Michigan at Selfridge.  I am proud of the servicemen and women who have made Selfridge the standard for excellence, and proud of the incredible outpouring of support for our base from the surrounding community,” said Representative Mitchell
