Good News: Muskegon has been named one of the healthiest housing markets in the nation by Nationwide Insurance!

I was sad to learn today that former Muskegon County Commissioner & Whitehall Township Supervisor Dennis Babcock passed away on Friday. Dennis has been a strong voice for Muskegon County for decades.

He will be missed.
