Mayor Tom Henry says he has the Indiana Statehouse connections to be the right man to continue leading Fort Wayne. Henry already is the record-holder for the title of longest serving mayor of the state’s second-largest city. June 22 he announced his intentions to seek the 2023 Democratic nomination that he hopes will eventually lead to a fifth consecutive 4-year term.

Although Henry previously told Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly that he would be happy to step aside for another Democratic candidate, he said after his announcement, “a lot of the individuals we felt might be interested in seeking this position have opted not to at this time.”
