Meet the Candidates 2020

Your chamber and Government Affairs Committee are continuously advocating for your business needs through work with local, state and federal elected officials. We believe that an educated and involved electorate will make the right decisions for our communities.

Our Government Affairs Committee has sent this questionnaire to each candidate to help inform voters on candidates in Muskegon County before the election on November 3rd. We have also provided the candidate’s pages for further information. This website is made possible through the support of Comcast.
