Hughes Statement Regarding ABC Endorsement

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

The Northeast Council of the Associated Builders and Contractors of Indiana, Inc. (ABC) is the area’s top organization in promoting competition and free enterprise principles amongst the building trades. For ABC to recognize my commitment to those principles and that this is best way to get Fort Wayne working again is truly humbling. As mayor, I look forward to working with them to limit the size and scope of government and give businesses the opportunity to expand and grow.
