GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Republican candidate for lieutenant governor said she’s maintaining focus on her campaign even as her family has been displaced by a fire at their home.

Lisa Posthumus Lyons, a former state legislator and currently the Kent County clerk, was at the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce Monday to accept the its endorsement.

She was asked about how she is dealing with the hectic schedule of a statewide campaign while dealing with her four children and being relocated after a Sept. 9 fire at the family’s home near Alto.

“It is very daunting as we go forward, dealing with the loss of our home and how do we pick up those pieces and rebuild, but we have everything that matters. We have support, we have love, we have each other,” Lyons said. “And this campaign is very important to the future of my kids, so I continue to focus on that as well in addition to serving the people of Kent County.”

No one was injured in the fire, which has been ruled accidental. The family will be relocating to a temporary home this week while the original structure is rebuilt.
