To The Point: A look at the 32nd Senate District race


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — On this “To the Point,” we watch the 32n/a Senate district race featuring two sitting lawmakers, State Sen. Jon Bumstead, R-Newaygo, and State Rep. Terry Sabo, D-Muskegon.

They both share their vision for the newly redesigned neighborhood.

“I have three new counties in the 32n/a Seat of the Senate. I now represent the 34e which is Muskegon, Oceana (and) Newaygo. The new 32n/a is most of Muskegon, all of Oceana, all of Mason, most of Manistee except three eastern townships and all of Benzie, so now it’s a two and a half hour drive. It’s very similar to Muskegon Oceana and Newaygo counties, just good people that we found them great with when we knock on doors and that sort of thing,” Bumstead said.

“When I first took over as County Commissioner in this community in 2012, you’re right, it’s come a long way and I certainly can’t take credit for everything, but what I’m going to take credit for it, it’s really trying to build those relationships and really trying to make sure the local units of government are working together to try to take advantage of what we have here in Muskegon,” said Sabo.

It’s a race for 32n/a Senate and you’ll hear from the candidates in this “To The Point” episode for the weekend of August 20.
