Meet Mansfield’s First Female Mayor: Kathy Barrett

by Deb Bastian - February 10, 2022

The Mansfield High School Class of 1970 has given the Borough of Mansfield some exceptional leaders. As a high school class they had the unique opportunity to experience the excitement of becoming the PA State Basketball Champions in their junior year, an achievement that will always be their unique tie to Mansfield. As with all classes, some graduates will leave, some will stay, and some will choose to return to their hometown. Kathy Barrett chose to return.

Kathy grew up in Mansfield, attended Mansfield State College and became a teacher. Although life took her to other places including Virginia and Iowa, eventually the desire to be home brought Kathy back to Mansfield, back to her high school friends and gave her a new career – Mayor of Mansfield.

Kathy became acting mayor in July 2021 when the mayor at the time moved out of the borough. She won election in November and was sworn in as mayor in January 2022. The office has four year term and Kathy is looking forward to all that the office requires. In the interview you’ll hear Kathy talk about her duties and what she hopes to accomplish as mayor. She also shares about learning first-hand what our police officers do as she rode for a shift on a hot summer day!
