While the October News Roundup will focus on expanding stories we aired during the month of October, we began our program with a deep dive into the results of the 2019 municipal election. Held on Nov. 5, the day before our roundup aired, we looked at Fort Wayne races and a number of races in the area's largest municipalities.

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.

Republican mayoral hopefuls John Crawford and Tim Smith faced off in their first debate Thursday night, two months ahead of the May 7 primary election.
