The third-term mayor of the city will discuss his passion for the well-being of the environment and the community, and explain how his previous experience as president and CEO of Pilgrim Manor Retirement Community and as an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ at Heartside Ministry helped shape the views he uses to help govern the city.

Heartwell’s Wheelhouse Talk is one of just three left this season. Heartwell will be followed by Kelly LeCoy, founder and owner of Uptown Kitchen, along with ArtPrize Top-5 finisher Michael Hyacinthe, who runs a nonprofit that helps wounded veterans become entrepreneurs.
