Henry to seek 4th term as Fort Wayne mayor

Ashley Sloboda | The Journal Gazette

Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today made it official: he's seeking a fourth term. 

He announced his candidacy for the May 2019 Democratic primary before a standing room-only crowd at a Franklin School Park pavilion decorated in blue and yellow. 

For about 10 minutes, Henry spoke of the city's accomplishments and accolades in the last decade. Fort Wayne's progress is one most cities would envy, he said. 

"We've only just begun," Henry said. 

Mayor since 2008, he wants to stay involved in the city's momentum. 

"I'm not quite finished yet," he told reporters afterward.
