FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry will be seeking a fourth term as leader of Indiana's second-largest city.
Henry is a Democrat who was first elected mayor in 2007. He announced Monday that he would seek a new four-year term in the 2019 municipal elections.
Henry says he's proud of what he called Fort Wayne's progress over the past decade and that he would focus on public safety, neighborhood improvements and economic development if he wins re-election.
The 66-year-old mayor underwent heart bypass surgery in 2016 but has said he's fully recovered.
City Councilman John Crawford and businessman Tim Smith have announced bids for the Republican mayoral nomination.
