Mike Holzer — Superstar!

Readers are clamoring for another photo of Mike Holzer, Burton's Public Utilities supervisor, who is willing to get down and dirty to illustrate the dangers of stealing manhole covers. There's no denying he's gained celebrity status on Flint Expatriates.

Mike, if you're a reader, drop us a line. And keep up the good work.


  1. That plaid shirt, those come-hither eyes ... Mike, you're a star.

  2. Okay, everybody needs to just calm down now.

  3. Hmm... you can't see his left hand. Married? Single? Curious minds need to know....


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
