From the Publisher June 2022


Dear Readers,

I’m very excited about this magazine!

In addition to announcing the 2022 City’s Choice Award Winners, there’s much, much more to enjoy this month.

I often get comments from subscribers about the great variety in My City. That is the result of having a team dedicated to developing content that is relevant, engaging and fun.

Speaking of “team players,” we created a special section for the June issue that highlights 2022 Top Athletes from Genesee County high schools. We appreciate the participating schools for helping us honor these outstanding kids!

The word “outstanding” might be overused, but it certainly fits when describing our story subjects. On the cover is the new Flint Public Library – maybe spectacular is a better word! And, the community recently honored Attorney Shelley Spivack, a longtime legal system advocate for Genesee County children, for her continued work on behalf of Greater Flint kids. Also, award-winning WNEM TV5 News Anchor (and multiple City’s Choice honoree) David Custer shares his inspiring journey; it’s a great read. Our popular “7 Questions” feature highlights Brian Waldron, new CEO of Dort Financial Credit Union, a big supporter of many local causes. If that was not enough, we profile the Honorable Mark C. McCabe – a respected, veteran Genesee County adjudicator. What was his first career choice?

Okay, let’s talk about a reader-favorite subject: food! Since 1996, Redwood Steakhouse & Brewery has been a go-to place for a top-quality meal in a unique atmosphere. My family has had many memorable celebrations there. Executive Chef Luis Fernandes gives us the history. (WARNING: don’t read the “My Eats” feature if you’re hungry!)

Wrapping up the content is a new “My Style” piece contributed by Shannon White, co-founder of the she-powered Downtown retail business, SHIFT. If you’ve seen these gals about town, you know they’ve got great style!

Flint’s got outstanding people, food, style and our ten pages of local “Haps” exhibits all that and more. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading
