Mike Crawford
Mike Crawford took on writing blogs to talk about the city of Windsor and the Essex County region. Everything from the good, to the bad, it’s history, it’s future and the present. Articles that bring forth an interest to residents and, to those that come here as a visitor.

He has always enjoyed writing poems and stories from a young age and joined the Windsor Business Networks team in the fall of 2014.

Mike has taken on a more serious writing role, one that connects the region’s residents to what’s happening in the now and beyond. His hope is to shed light on current events and the future of Windsor, in a simplified manner.
