Richland County Republicans get an update from Capitol Hill during their monthly luncheon Monday.

12th District Congressman Pat Tiberi was the guest speaker.

He says things are getting done in Washington, and he has more to work on as he begins a new term. 

Also speaking was Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker, who's seeking re-election to a second term in November.

He says the city has grown and improved, and he looks forward to getting more accomplished.

Theaker says Mansfield's unemployment rate has dropped from 10% to 6%, the city was removed from fiscal emergency, 350 abandoned and vacant houses and buildings have been torn down, and staffing in the police and fire departments have increased.

Theaker kicks-off his campaign this Friday at 4:30 pm at Ed Pickens Cafe' on Main.

His Democratic challenger is former North Central State College President Ron Abrams.
