Carl Edward Conyers

John Conyers, Jr. (born May 16, 1929) is the U.S. Representative for Michigan's 14th congressional district, serving since 1965 (the district was numbered as the 1st District until 1993), and the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

He is currently the second-longest serving incumbent member of the House (just after fellow Democrat from Michigan, John Dingell) and the third-longest incumbent member of the entire Congress by length of service (after Dingell and Daniel Inouye). The district includes most of northwestern Detroit, as well as Highland Park, Hamtramck and part of Dearborn.
