Every month on the first Monday, Mayor Heartwell is open to all questions sent in during his live on-air show "City Connection." 

This month, with City Connection landing on the evening before midterm elections, our Community Engagement Specialist Chelsie Wyse asked the mayor about how he encourages local citizens to get out and vote. Monday night at 5:00 p.m. the mayor responded to this and other citizen concerns. He spoke about issues such as winter parking ordinances, parking ramps downtown and public transportation improvements.

You can add your own questions each month by calling in, emailingtweeting or just posting a question in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The show is aired on the first Monday of each month on GRTV, Channel 24 on Comcast, as well as live-streaming 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.
