About Me/Acerca de Mí
Hello, I’m Melissa LaGrand, County Commissioner. Currently, I represent District 15. In 2022 I'm running for the new District 16. I'm a mother of four, a long-time Grand Rapids resident, and a small business owner. As the mom of a blind child, I'm an experienced accessibility advocate. I am passionate about public health, and I've been an outspoken supporter of the Kent County Department of Public Health, which has played a crucial role during the COVID-19 pandemic. I serve on the board of Network180, which provides Community Mental Health care in our county, and I served on the board of Cherry Health for six years.
I serve on the board of Michiganworks! and the Grand Valley Metro Council Transportation Policy Committee. I continue to focus on issues of housing, accessibility to healthcare, county parks, and improving the day-to-day experience of Kent County residents who live in Grand Rapids.
