GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Four seats on the Kent County Board of Commissioners, including one representing the first Hispanic majority county, will be open and up for grabs in 2022 under a reallocation plan adopted this week.

With a 4-1 vote on Wednesday October 20, the Kent County Apportionment Commission passed the Republicans’ proposed reallocation plan that will add two more seats on the Board of Commissioners, create a Hispanic majority district, and four incumbents will compete against each other in 2022.
