Mayor Henry’s Reply to Tim Smith’s Press Conference

“I am glad to hear that Tim Smith joins me in supporting local public education. I do question, however, whether my opponent is running for Mayor or the Indiana General Assembly as Fort Wayne’s Mayor has no direct authority over our schools. Knowing my legal limitations as Fort Wayne’s Mayor, I will continue to pave sidewalks to schools like we just completed at St. Joseph Elementary; continue to staff our schools with Fort Wayne Police Officers like we have done throughout my tenure; continue the Mayor’s Youth Engagement Council which introduces young people to government; and, continue to foster those valued partnerships with our educational friends from the FWCS Career Academy to our universities, our vocational schools to organized labor.”
