Message from Pete

Our hometown has made tremendous progress. We’ve announced almost 2,000 jobs created in our City and tens of millions of dollars in new business investment.


We are more than halfway toward our goal of fixing or removing 1,000 vacant houses to strengthen our neighborhoods, and our downtown is more active than we’ve seen in decades.


Public safety has continued to improve, and our finances remain among the strongest in the state. Our use of technology has been transformed, and the new 311 system has simplified city services on everything from water bills to trash pickup.


It’s been a productive and fulfilling term, but there is much more work to do. As our city celebrates its 150thanniversary, we have only begun to unlock the potential of our community. What we do now will set the tone for the half-century to come.

South Bend is back. Now it’s time to make sure our neighborhoods, our economy, and our administration keep heading in the right direction.


– Mayor Pete
