In 1970, a Jewish News editorial said this about Maxine Berman:
". . it is to be hoped that more Maxine Bermans will lend their abilities to causes for

justice and decency as protectors of the basic American ideals and of the Jewish
legacies . ."


"As someone who has represented Southfield on the City
Council for seven years, I can think of no finer person to
represent us in Lansing than Maxine Berman."

Hon. Lillian Jaffee Oaks, Southfield Council

"Every now and then, when we need it the most, someone
comes along with energy, innovation, and the ability to analyze
problems and offer concrete solutions. This year we have
Maxine Berman."

Hon. Neil Staebler, Past Chair., Michigan Democratic Party

"Whenever we've needed her, Maxine Berman has always
been there with her legislative contacts to help organize
Michigan's elected representatives with regard to issues in-
Rae Ann Sharfman
volving Soviet Jewry and Israel."

"We need someone in Lansing with long-time political experi-
ence, perseverence, wisdom and maturity. Maxine Berman
represents the very best the Democratic Party can offer. She is
our unanimous choice for endorsement. We urge you to sup-
Southfield Democratic Club
port her."

"Our committee was extremely impressed . . . we need more
strong; capable women in Lansing."

Michigan Federation of Teachers

"Maxine Berman understands the needs and problems of
education and of her community."
