  • DisArt Festival
  • Year of Art & Access
  • Strong Neighborhoods, Strong City Summit
  • Food infrastructure and access to quality food for all residents
  • Proposition 1
  • A new park
  • Air quality
  • The mayor's response to the Indiana Religious Freedom Act

The show is regularly 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.

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.
