GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Rosalynn Bliss, Grand Rapids first female mayor, is receiving a big honor from a Detroit-based organization.
Crain’s Detroit Business named Bliss one of the ‘100 Most Influential Women’ for her accomplishments over the past six months as mayor. Her historic election win was also mentioned during the announcement in a recent press release from the City of Grand Rapids.
According to Crain’s website, the organization honors women who are leaders in business, academia, non profit and public policy. They’ve been honoring women in metro Detroit since 1997 and now take that recognition statewide.
