Next Tuesday voters will head to the polls, as the Grand Rapids City Commission is holding two primaries in the 1st and 2nd ward. This week, WGVU is profiling the six candidates running for those two Commission seats.
Kurt Reppart is the Executive Director at The Other Way Ministries, a Christian community development organization providing a number of services to the Grand Rapids Westtown neighborhood. Reppart is running for Commissioner in the city’s 1st Ward, and WGVU asked Reppart three questions:
Why are you running for Grand Rapids City Commission? What issues facing Grand Rapids are most important to you personally? If elected, what can the 1st Ward and the City of Grand Rapids expect under your leadership?
Listen to Reppart's answers above.
