GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Democratic candidates in Grand Rapids will be speaking at an event called "Progressives in the Park."

It's happening Tuesday, August 14 from 4 to 8 p.m., at Wilcox Park on the southeast side.

U.S. Congressman Dan Kildee from the Flint area will be there along with local nominees for the state Senate and House of Representatives, Secretary of State, Attorney General and others.
