FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will announce his plans to run for a fourth term this afternoon at the David Hefner Pavilion at Franklin School Park.

If elected to an unprecedented fourth, four-year term, Henry says his administration will focus on public safety, neighborhood improvements, good stewardship of taxpayer money, and a continuation of the city’s economic prosperity he says it’s enjoyed during his previous terms.

“I’m proud of the progress we’ve made over the past decade to showcase Fort Wayne as the country’s best mid-sized city by nearly every measure,” Henry says. “But we still have work to do. I want to see through completion the exciting economic initiatives we’ve begun, while also concentrating on quality of life issues that have made Fort Wayne a sought-after destination to live, work and play.”

Henry will provide more specifics about his plans for a fourth mayoral term during the press conference.

Henry is running as a Democrat. Two Republicans – City Councilman Dr. John Crawford and businessman Tim Smith, are also vying for the office.
