MAYOR TOM HENRY

Our City is building positive momentum. Only three months into 2013, great things are happening!

RICHARD A. STEVENSON

This year marks my 7th year as the leader of the Wayne Township Trustee Office. I have held significant roles in my career, but the role as Trustee exceeds them all. Regularly I make rounds to my staff to greet them and to let them know how much I appreciate their dedication to our mission of helping people in our community.

SENATOR LONG

Indiana lawmakers are now in the second half of the 2013 legislative session. Key initiatives to better this state and our Fort Wayne community are well on their way to becoming law.

State Senator David Long

Too often the men and women who dedicate their lives to serving our country struggle to find meaningful, high-paying work when they return home. The General Assembly is taking several important steps this session to curb this unfortunate trend and make sure our veterans have a clear pathway toward a career and strong financial foundation for themselves and their families.
