Meet the Candidates event was held at Ohio University Eastern last night to introduce those vying for seats in St. Clairsville for Election 2019. The candidates are in the running for mayor, city council, and Richland Township trustees.

They all got a few minutes Thursday night to make their case.

The big race is for St. Clairsville mayor, which includes Kathryn Tahlman and Bill Brooks, with Mayor Terry Pugh running for re-election.

The big issue? Water and whether to privatize the city’s system.

This issue was addressed by all three mayoral candidates.
