Statement from the Eric Doden for Mayor campaign:
Allen County Right to Life endorses Eric Doden for Fort Wayne mayor
(April 7, 2011) – The Allen County Right to Life Political Action Committee this week announced its endorsement of Eric Doden in the Republican primary for Fort Wayne mayor.
“I am honored to receive this endorsement from the Allen County Right to Life,” Doden said. “My pro-life, pro-family values have guided me in everything I do, and that will be no different if elected. This endorsement is something that brings with it great responsibility, and if elected mayor, I’ll make sure my administration reflects my conservative values to help make our city great once again.”
“I’ve always said that you can tell a lot about a society by how it treats those most in need – the helpless, the innocent,” he added. “Children not yet born belong in that category, which is why I value this endorsement so much.”
Last week, Doden participated in a debate sponsored by the Allen Country Right to Life. His responses in that debate, combined with responses to a survey administered by the organization, earned him its endorsement.
To date, Doden remains the only Republican mayoral candidate with a strategic plan for creating and retaining jobs and growing Fort Wayne’s economy. He’s shared specific components of that plan over the past several months. Most recently, he discussed his approach to stemming the city’s home-foreclosure problems. Prior to that, he shared his vision for strengthening Fort Wayne’s education system and partnerships; announced his plans to promote a culture of productivity and customer service as mayor; market Fort Wayne in a targeted and aggressive campaign; leverage a portion of the light-lease fund to attract capital projects that will create jobs in Fort Wayne, as well as attract and retain a talented workforce; and attract 1,000 entrepreneurs to Fort Wayne.
