Got a question for Mayor Heartwell? Every month, local citizens have an opportunity to interact with Grand Rapid's most prominent elected official.
This past Monday evening at 5:00, Mayor Heartwell answered questions from local citizens in his monthly call-in show on GRTV (and streamed live here on The Rapidian!) "City Connection."
This month, Rapidian intern Ana Olvera asks the mayor about the development around the Arena South district, and the ways current neighbors are being considered as development plans take shape. Watch the archived episode here to see Mayor Heartwell's response to Olvera's question, along with other citizens of your community. Or ask your own question right here on The Rapidian!
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.
