  Original Published: 9/12/2013Mansfield City Council candidates running in the November 5 General Election took part in the first candidate's night hosted Wednesday by the North End Community Improvement Collaborative, (NECIC). The candidates included Republican At-Large councilman Cliff Mears and Democratic challenger Cynthia Baker, retired city community development director; third ward council candidates Republican Jamie Thompson, co-director of Downtown Mansfield Inc., and Democrat Jon VanHarlingen, a retired city worker and Incumbent fifth ward councilwoman Pat Hightower, a Democrat. Her challenger Republican Carl Yeager Jr. was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict. The Richland County Board of Elections reinstated Yeager's name on the ballot following a court order this week from the Ohio Supreme Court. The candidates addressed questions related to citywide concerns including blight, vacant housing, demolitions, and the economic development. "What's interesting and different about this candidate's night is that it's more about process. We want to find out how the candidates are going to communicate with the community to solve problems," NECIC executive director Deanna West-Torrence said. NECIC will host another candidates night on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 4 p.m. Candidates for the Mansfield City Schools Board of Education and representatives for the Senior Services Renewal Levy and the Children Services Replacement Levy will speak at the event.
