Mansfield ranks fifth among the ten fastest-shrinking American cities, according to an article on the website 24-7 Wall Street.

It says Mansfield's population has dropped 2-percent over the last three years, and 7-percent since 1980, with the unemployment rate higher than the national average and 75th highest among cities in the nation.

But Bridget McDaniel of the Richland Community Development Group says there are plenty of reasons why our worst days are behind us and the future looks brighter.

The article says Mansfield had nearly 3,000 more people move out than move in during the last three years. Mayor Tim Theaker calls that statistic misleading because he says most people leaving Mansfield are only moving to other parts of the county.

Both point to the expansion of School Specialty, the purchase of Sabin-Robbins paper company by a businessman from New York, the plan by Fed-Ex to build a distribution center employing 150, and the development of the former General Motors plant of prime examples of how Mansfield and Richland County in general are rebounding.
