At 5 p.m. Monday night, Mayor Heartwell's live interactive public access show City Connection will be simulcast right here on The Rapidian. City Connection is an opportunity for Grand Rapidians to talk with our mayor about important city issues.

This will be the first episode with new permanent co-host Linda Gellasch following the departure of long time host and volunteer, Sr. Barbara Hansen. Gellasch has previously filled in for Hansen on the program. Hansen worked on the program for 12 years before deciding to step down.  

City Connection serves residents who have any questions or anything they would like to say to Mayor Heartwell. Grand Rapidians are encouraged each month to do so on the article or by emailing [email protected], tweeting @GRTVaccess,  or leaving a Facebook comment. Tune in on the first Monday of each month at 5 p.m. to hear him respond to you live on GRTV’s Livewire (channel 24 on Comcast) and streaming on The Rapidian.
