Mayor Announces Resignations in City Clerk's Office

City of Fort Wayne

Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry issued a statement late Thursday afternoon announcing the resignation of multiple employees in the City Clerk's office, including Chief Deputy Clerk Angie Davis.

The resignations follow what Henry describes as “inexcusable activities” by employees of the City Clerk’s office.

Longtime democratic City Clerk Sandy Kennedy resigned her post earlier in October citing health reasons. Her resignation came days after she was accused of electioneering in the City Clerk’s office.

Indiana state statute requires the mayor’s office to appoint an Interim City Clerk. Henry asked former City Councilman Don Schmidt, a republican, to temporarily fill the vacancy.

Davis has been campaigning for the City Clerk position in this year’s municipal elections.  Her name will still be on the ballot, but the status of her campaign remains unclear.
