ALLENDALE (WKZO) -- Ottawa County is solid Republican territory when it comes to elections, but students at Grand Valley State University don't care.  They are protesting the school's decision to have Governor Snyder as the 2013 commencement speaker.

Students have launched an online petition and a Facebook page to try to change the minds of administrators.  They cite cuts to education and the new emergency manager law that went into effect Thursday.
