City government serves the people and it must adapt with the changing political, economic and social environment. We can not do business in Mishawaka the way we have done it since 1833...It requires extraordinary leadership, integrity and commitment. If there ever was room in city government for personal, private or political considerations, it is gone! Local officials must work together and work with their constituents.

At the same time, they must be visionaries who think long-term and big-picture, carefully balancing the interests of the community with individual interests. We must have the wisdom to know what is right and the courage to do what is right.

Mishawaka's public servants work long hours at little or no pay to ensure your present safety and long-term welfare. We are proud of the men and women who serve. Building on the rich heritage of our fathers, our current team brings dedication and integrity to their jobs. They strive together with our residents to help make our city safe, secure, and enduring.
