The Mott Foundation is saddened to hear about the passing of former Flint Mayor Woodrow Stanley. We offer our condolences to Stanley’s family, friends and colleagues.

The Foundation frequently works with government officials at all levels to help support and strengthen Flint and Genesee County. We had the privilege of working with Stanley in his roles as city councilman, Flint mayor, Genesee County commissioner and state representative. The fact that he served his community in so many capacities is a testament to his servant heart.
