South Bend is less than three weeks away from the November 8th election.

This year, people will be voting for a new mayor, since the current man in charge, Steve Luecke, is not running for re-election.

Whoever gets the job will have to deal with the perception that South Bend is dangerous and making residents feel safer could be a tall order for whoever is elected.

Three men are vying to be South Bend Mayor: Democrat Pete Buttigieg, Republican Wayne Curry, and Libertarian Pat Farrell.

In the weeks leading up to the election, Newscenter16 asked each candidate what they would do to make South Bend's neighborhoods safer.
