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

This month, intern VanderMolen asked the mayor about efforts on the City's part to deter violence within the city, after hearing of a second shooting at the downtown branch of the YMCA. On Monday, May 5 at 5:00 p.m. the mayor responded to this and other citizen concerns. 

Every month, you can also add your own question by calling in, emailingtweeting or just posting a question in the comments section at the bottom of the article 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.
