GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- In Grand Rapids, the only primary election Tuesday, August 6 is for Third Ward commissioner.
Incumbent James B. White is not seeking re-election, so whoever wins will be new to city hall, but not necessarily to politics.
The three candidates are: Senita Lenear, a former Grand Rapids school board president, Michael Tuffelmire, who ran the successful effort to decriminalize marijuana in Grand Rapids, and Annette Ries - a waitress.
Watch the video above to hear from each candidate in their own words.
