Greater Fort Wayne Inc. named Eric Doden its new chief executive officer this week, replacing former CEO Mark Becker, who resigned in January.

Four candidates are hoping to represent the Republican Party in the run for mayor of Fort Wayne in November.
The City of Fort Wayne hasn’t had a Republican mayor since Paul Helmke in 1999.
Among the hopefuls trying to change that are Bob Bastian, Bill Collins, and Frederick Osheskie.
But the candidate likely considered the front runner is long-time politician Mitch Harper. He was first elected to City Council’s 4th District in 2007, and served 12 years in the General Assembly before that.
The Indiana General Assembly is required to complete its work no later than April 29th in the years when they pass a two-year budget. It is quite common for them to work right up to that deadline like they did this year.
As this session ended, people began talking about how memorable this session was. They certainly have some notable legislation and events to point to when they are making their case.
Republicans declared “mission accomplished” on the new budget as they brought a close to the 2015 legislative session.
The $31 billion two-year budget creates a record-increase in K-12 education spending, allocates more money for domestic violence prevention and treatment, the Department of Child Services, and public retirees.
