FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Republican Tim Smith is officially running against councilman John Crawford to be Fort Wayne's next mayor.

Smith made his candidacy official by filing with the Allen County Board of Elections Tuesday.

Smith said he's looking forward to helping fight crime in the city.

"We're top heavy. We have officers, fully uniformed officers, that we can move from behind desks to the streets, more traffic officers, more detectives," Smith said.

Smith would also like to take another look at the city's trash collection contract.

Last year, Red River Waste Solutions was fined more than $300,000 for missed pick-ups.
