Residents opposing Ottawa Impact form political action committee

Date:

GRAND HAVEN — A group of Ottawa County residents have launched a political action committee to inform and activate others to get engaged with local government and financially back candidates running in the county’s District 10.

A press release from the Ottawa North Tri-Cities Action Committee (ONTRAC) describes itself as “a group of northwest Ottawa County citizens (that) have joined forces to encourage responsible government and oppose the radical right-wing group Ottawa Impact.”

The release says the committee’s primary goals are “to safeguard democratic processes, communicate factual information on issues relevant to local residents, promote responsible voting and recommend local candidates.”

A group of Ottawa County residents have launched a political action committee to inform and activate others to get engaged with local government.

One of the group’s steering committee members, Cindy Spielmaker, said while Ottawa Impact campaigned on “transparency” and “facts,” she doesn’t feel they’ve demonstrated those ideals since taking office in January.

“Oftentimes what the Ottawa Impact commissioners end up doing is anything but transparent,” Spielmaker said. “One of the things we’re hoping for in our mission for ONTRAC is to be factual … and to be transparent with where those facts are coming from.”
