CLEVELAND — Cleveland's two remaining mayoral hopefuls faced off for another debate Monday evening.

Justin Bibb, a nonprofit executive, and Kevin Kelley, president of Cleveland City Council, took part in the "Cleveland Mayoral Debate: Voters First" presented by the City Club of Cleveland and Ideastream Public Media.

You can watch it in the player below:

Ideastream Public Media senior host and producer Rick Jackson hosted the debate and was joined by a panel of journalists including Nick Castele, senior reporter/producer at Ideastream Public Media; Lawrence Daniel Caswell, field coordinator at Cleveland Documenters and Elizabeth McIntyre, executive editor at Crain's Cleveland Business.

During the debate, Clevelanders spoke in pre-recorded videos about the things that matter to them and to their communities, such as economic development, infrastructure and arts in the community, asking Bibb and Kelley about their stances on numerous issues.

The two have already made clear some of the points of emphasis they'd implement if voted in as mayor with public safety being a top concern for both.
