The City of Grandville has been blessed to have leaders that have learned how to capitalize on Grandville’s assets and its potential.  While most of America is focused on the dysfunction of our federal government we can count our blessings that our local leaders are committed to the things that affect our day to day life. Our local schools, local businesses, water supply, fire and police services, road maintenance, beautiful parks and emphasis on caring for our seniors are just a few of the areas in which Grandville excels. 

"Local government has an enormous impact on people's everyday lives, and on the services that people have the most contact with," stated Eric Hartman, Grandville-Jenison Chamber of Commerce President.  It is for this reason that the Chamber will be hosting a free Candidate Forum for both the City Council and Mayoral Candidates.

On Tuesday, November 5, Grandville voters will be asked to choose three city council candidates out of five.  Candidates include; Incumbent Dick Richards, Lee Cook, Andy Richter, Andy Steenstra and Steve Zinger. Mayoral candidates are Steve Maas and Randy Gelderloos. If Mr. Gelderloos is elected, it will be necessary for the Council to appoint someone to fill his seat.

The forum and video interviews coordinated by the Government & Community Relations Committee of the Grandville-Jenison Chamber of Commerce are not intended to endorse or support a particular candidate but are a reflection of our desire to acquaint our membership and the community at large with those individuals seeking leadership positions in the community. The video interviews are located on the chambers website at
