Democrat Laurel Prussing is seeking a fourth term as mayor of Urbana.  But before the municipal election in April, Prussing faces two challengers in the Democratic primary on February 28th, alderwoman Diane Marlin, and Evelyn Burnett Underwood.

Prussing came to our WILL studios for a conversation about some of the issues facing the city.  She first explained why she should be elected to another term.

In this web extra, Prussing discusses a recent increase in shootings in the southeast part of the city, and how she has addressed violent crime in Urbana during her time in office.
