What Jim Will Do
Justice System Reform
Our justice system is inefficient and tends to favor those who are well off in our community. I’ve helped level the playing field through my work on the Kent County Community Corrections Advisory Board and the Michigan Task Force on Jails and Pretrial Incarceration
Healthy families need a healthy environment. Kent County government plays a significant role in what we do with our waste. I’ve always been a strong advocate for reducing what we throw away and recycling what we can. In my work with the Grand River Restoration Steering Committee and various farmland preservation initiatives, I’ve focused on preserving and improving our environment in Kent County.
Grand Rapids and Kent County governments play unique roles in our lives and we need them to work well together. My collaborative style has earned the respect of Grand Rapids Commissioners and staff and is demonstrated by endorsements of my campaign by our Grand Rapids Mayor and both Second Ward City Commissioners.

The growth and strengthening of our communities are contingent on us collectively engaging and taking action.
