County Democrats make donation and challenge Republicans

Last night The Grant County Democratic Party presented a donation to the Marion Fire Station 1 fundraising campaign and challenged their Republican counterparts to make a matching gift.


Local Democratic Party officials presented the $1,500 donation to the Friends of the Marion Professionals Firefighters Fund.


Marion Fire Chief Geoff Williams said this could be a great way to create a community fund raiser.


Fire Station 1 in downtown Marion was vacated for safety reasons in October, a few weeks after a building inspection revealed several code violations and hazards, including a sagging roof and extensive water damage.
