Aftab Pureval and David Man debate

A quiet mayor's race grew louder Tuesday night. 

The two Democrats running for mayor, Cincinnati Councilman David Mann and Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Aftab Pureval, went after each other in the debate held at Xavier University and sponsored by the university, The Enquirer and WVXU-FM (91.7).

It was their first debate and first time in an otherwise low-key race the public saw Pureval and Mann spar with each other. 

Mann went on the offensive first. 

Early in the hourlong debate, Mann belittled Pureval's job as Hamilton County clerk of courts. With a budget of $13 million, Mann described the office as just keeping track of papers and "not terribly important," compared with the job of mayor and city councilman of Cincinnati, overseeing a budget of $1.5 billion and 6,000 employees.
