Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry announced his newly appointed Deputy Mayor Tuesday.
Karl Bandemer has a long history with Mayor Tom Henry. In the early 80s Bandemer was in charge of economic development when then city council member Henry served. Henry attributes Bandemer with encouraging a diversity of industry in town, after Fort Wayne had lost thousands of manufacturing jobs at that time.
He also lauds Bandemer for his leadership, government experience, and aptitude for economic development.
