Monday at 5:00 p.m., Mayor Heartwell answered questions from local citizens in his monthly call-in show on GRTV (and streamed live here on The Rapidian!) "City Connection." 

Each month, you can add your own questions for City Connection with a tweet, on Facebook, or in an email at any time. You can also leave a comment directly here at the bottom of this article at any time or call 459-4881 during the show. 

If you’re brimming with questions or wondering what other Grand Rapidians are thinking about, every first Monday of the month you have that chance when Mayor George Heartwell takes the screen both on television and on the internet. In fact, right here.

For 18 years, the mayors of Grand Rapids have hosted City Connection, a monthly, live call-in show on GRTV’s Livewire, Comcast channel 24.  Mayor John Logie started the program in 1992 as a way to share mayoral perspective with Grand Rapidians and to bring a little more transparency to local government. City Connection is an opportunity to interact directly with one of our city’s top elected officials.
