For Our Community

It is indeed a privilege to represent the 15th District of the Kent County Commission. I try to represent the citizens of my district, as well as Kent County, with the competency and integrity that they deserve.

In an attempt to keep people informed about Kent County government, I write a short weekly e-mail newsletter that contains mostly information, but also a few opinions, about County issues. It's also a great way for me to get feedback that helps shape my work on the Commission. Click here to subscribe.

If you have suggestions or concerns about Kent County government, please don't hesitate to call me at 616-454-2243 or send an e-mail to jtalen@aol.com.

In April of 2009 I was privileged to travel to Lancaster, PA to learn about farmland preservation initiatives. Click on the links that follow to hear an audio report on the trip from Chris McCarus of Michigan Now Radio.

Thank you for your interest!

Jim Talen
