City of Flint mourns the loss of Flint City Councilman Eric Mays

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Flint City Councilman Eric Mays. A third-term councilman, he was beloved for his bold and courageous service on behalf of Flint’s First Ward, and his strong presence will be deeply missed. Our prayers are with his family, friends, and the entire city of Flint during this time of sorrow.

We offer our deepest condolences to his family and all those who loved him. The flag at Flint City Hall will be lowered to half-staff in his honor beginning Monday, February 26.

“This is a tremendous loss for our community and a shock to all friends and family,” Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley said. “As our community grieves during this difficult time, on behalf of Councilman Mays’ family, we ask that community members respect their privacy and allow them time and space to mourn. We continue to lift the family in prayer.”
