Welcome to a WBOI special program presenting the 2019 Mayoral Forum on Quality of Life. Arts United, PBS39, the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics, and the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne have partnered to produce a town hall style discussion with Democratic Incumbent Mayor Tom Henry and Republican challenger, Tim Smith. Bruce Haines, General Manager of PBS39, will serve as the moderator for the event, and the discussion was recorded on Oct. 18 at the Auer Auditorium in the Rhinehart Music Center at Purdue Fort Wayne. Some community members were invited to address the candidates with their questions during the live event. Thank you for listening.
Special thanks to the team at Auer Auditorium for providing the audio for this broadcast. This program was edited by WBOI Intern Brittany Smith. Our music is by Mark Waldick and Noah Campodonico. The PBS39 television broadcast of the forum can be found here.
