First presidential election brings clash to small towns

GRAND LEDGE, MI – The trickle-down effect may or may not create jobs, but the strife between Republican and Democratic Parties certainly trickles down into small communities following a presidential debate. On Thursday, Oct. 4, after the debate, both parties have made advertisements highlighting the negatives of their opponents and the positives of their candidates which reflected the feelings of Grand Ledge residents

“I was disappointed in the debate,” said Grand Ledge resident, Christine Walker. “I’ve been watching the debates since 64′ and this was probably the most tedious one I’ve seen.”

“Romney was well prepared; it felt like he had memorized and repeated stats the entire time. It lost my attention.
