City Speak Blog

Although City Speak claims to be an "insider" look at City Hall, the "official blog of the City of Flint" really just offers up an extremely positive spin on the Walling administration. There aren't many comments on the posts, and no responses from the city — yet — to those comments. It will be interesting to see if this becomes a true forum for citizens and city officials.

  1. I wouldn't bet on it. If it does fly, you will need a catcher's glove to handle the hot ones. It's an angry city....unclebuck


Thanks for commenting. 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
