New Leadership. New Ideas.

New Opportunities for Kent County.


I’m Stephen Wooden, and I’m running for Kent County Commissioner because I care deeply about the community we all call home. I believe that with new leadership, we can build stronger neighborhoods, new opportunities, and make a real difference in Grand Rapids and Plainfield.

With a shared passion for positive change and a drive to make things better for Grand Rapids and Plainfield, here’s what we can get done with new leadership on the County Commission:

  • A Fair Budget that Works for You: We can strengthen our community by ensuring your hard-earned tax dollars are finally invested back in our own neighborhoods.

  • Clean Water: I’ll work to make sure we protect our drinking water, and hold those who provide it and pollute it accountable.

  • A Champion for Education: Let’s build a foundation for strong schools and drive a stronger economy by supporting early childhood and skilled trades education.

  • Accessible & Affordable Healthcare: We need to fill the gaps in healthcare coverage and make prescription drugs more affordable, for everyone.
