On Monday, May 2, Mayor Bliss will be joined by Chief Eric Winstrom for this month's episode of City Connection. Chief Winstrom became the 15th Chief of Police for the Grand Rapids Police Department on March 7, 2022 after serving the Chicago Police Department for over 20 years.

For over 30 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.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.
