City-County Councilwoman Angela Mansfield is in the last year of her third term on the Council and plans to run for a fourth term next year.  Mansfield has been a vocal fighter for her northwestside district which includes the neighborhoods around St. Vincent Hospital, Westlane, 71st and Michigan Road and College Park neighborhoods. Mansfield was instrumental in Indianapolis passing the historic smoke free ordinance several years ago. In September, Indianapolis Star Columnist Matt Tully and others had criticized Mansfield for not allowing testimony at a Council committee hearing on a proposal that wasn’t actually before the committee.  In an Afternoons with Amos interview, Councilwoman Mansfield talked about the problems in her district and the city’s northwest side.  Mansfield was especially concerned over the lack of streetlights in city neighborhoods, especially in township areas.  Mansfield was particularly concerned about a recent hit and run accident that killed a pedestrian on a darkened morning Westlane Road. Councilwoman Mansfield also expressed concern about a proposed ordinance that would mandate that the city provide services to the homeless, including storing belongings, at city expense,  of homeless people displaced from public areas.  Mansfield also talked about the big issues in her district and the city, crime and public safety.  As well as the lack city services and issues  with infrastructure.  Click the Media Player to Hear the Afternoons with Amos Interview With City-County Councilwoman Angela Mansfield.
