Last night, WKYC's Russ Mitchell sat down with Ohio State Rep. and Cleveland mayoral candidate Bill Patmon to discuss the upcoming election.

The two discussed a variety of topics, from why Patmon wants to be mayor, to current Mayor Frank Jackson, and even Patmon's days on-air at WKYC with Tom Beres.

The interview is one of many Russ has conducted with prospective candidates. The mayoral primary election takes place Sept. 12.
