Watch Again: Cleveland mayoral candidates square off in 2nd 'Voters First' debate

The Tuesday evening debate covered education, jobs, the economy, environmental issues and transportation.

CLEVELAND — For the second straight Tuesday, Cleveland's mayoral candidates met in a debate co-hosted by The City Club of Cleveland and Ideastream Public Media.

The Tuesday night debate, held at the Westfield Studio Theatre inside the Idea Center in Playhouse Square, focused on education, jobs, the economy, environmental issues and transportation. Questions came directly from voters. 

Nick Castele, Senior Reporter/Producer with Ideastream Public Media, served as Tuesday's debate moderator.

All seven candidates seeking to replace Frank Jackson as mayor of Cleveland participated in the debate and let their opinions and ideas be known. 

Cuyahoga County's Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, September 14. That will be the day when Clevelanders will head to the polls and help decide who will be their next mayor to replace the retiring Frank Jackson. The primary is considered non-partisan, with the top two finishers moving on to face each other in the General Election on November 2.
