Two newly elected Youngstown leaders - Mayor Jamael Tito Brown and Municipal Court Judge Carla Baldwin - participate in a “town hall” event 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 6, in the Ohio Room of Kilcawley Center on the campus of Youngstown State University.

The meeting for YSU students, faculty and staff is sponsored by the YSU Student Government Association.

She was admitted to the Ohio Bar in 2008 after graduating with her Juris Doctor degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Mich. After passing the bar, Baldwin was hired as an assistant prosecutor in Mahoning County, where she worked for eight years. In January 2017, Juvenile Court Judge Theresa Dellick appointed Baldwin as magistrate for the Juvenile Court. On May 2, 2017, Baldwin made history when she became the first African American woman to win a primary election for a judicial seat in Mahoning County.,
