There will be an election for the Grand Rapids City Commission tomorrow. Voters in the 1st and 2nd Wards will each decide between two candidates for the seats. Unfortunately, the local media’s coverage of the race has lacked substance and, in the case of The Grand rapids Press, has focused a considerable amount of attention on tangential issues such as the influence of special interest groups opposing abortion and the number of times candidates have voted in elections.
Media Mouse attended a debate for candidates for City Commission and summarized the candidates’ responses. We encourages readers to read through the candidate responses and vote tomorrow.
