Message from Pete

South Bend needs a fresh start.


We need an environment in our city that attracts businesses and creates jobs. We need stronger schools and safer neighborhoods. We need to offer user-friendly services and utilities without wasting taxpayer money. We need to take advantage of our location so we are better connected to the region and world, both physically and economically.


In the private sector, I worked with senior business leaders on major decisions related to economic development, business strategy, energy, and logistics. This work took me around the country and the world, including to Iraq and Afghanistan.


With your help on our campaign, I believe we can move these ideas forward and make South Bend an even better place to call home.


– Pete Buttigieg
