I’m David LaGrand and I’m the State Representative for Grand Rapids. The son of a minister and teacher, I was born in Grand Rapids and went to school here. My wife, Melissa, and I are raising our four children in Grand Rapids and we’ve invested in our community by opening several small businesses here, including Four Friends Coffee House, the Wealthy and Hall Street Bakeries, and Long Road Distillers. I’ve served our community as an Assistant Kent County Prosecutor, a City Commissioner, a Grand Rapids Public School Board member, and I currently serve as the State Representative for Grand Rapids.  As your voice in the House, I work for reformative policy that helps all our citizens and strengthens our communities.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
 

I will continue my life-long fight for equal rights and fairness for everyone. I will push to reform our criminal justice system so it is fair. I will work for policies which will keep non-violent criminals out of the prison system, reduce recidivism, and make us safer.

RESTORING FAITH IN OUR GOVERNMENT

Faith in our institutions is at an all time low, and I I am committed to enacting legislation that holds elected official accountable by requiring financial disclosure and prohibiting voting when a conflict of interest is present.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONS

Climate change is a constant threat to our future, and we must take action now to curb it. This includes encouraging electric vehicle adoption and supporting community solar projects in our neighborhoods.
