GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kent County GOP headquarters in Grand Rapids was vandalized following the election.

John Burri told 24 Hour News 8 he was going to the main office on Lake Michigan Drive to get a new Donald Trump sign after his was stolen overnight when he discovered that a window had been smashed by a wrench.

The wrench didn’t go through the window, but did leave some large cracks.

Kent GOP members said despite an election that’s divided the country, it’s time to work together.

“You know the truth of the matter is the emotions get going, they get excited, this is a very confrontational type of political thing, but the bottom line the people have spoken,” said Hank Fuhs, secretary of the Michigan Republican Committee.

“So somebody wasn’t very happy about the win. It’s kind of sad, win or lose whoever it is you have to stay calm and work together,” said Burri.

The incident was reported to Grand Rapids police.
