One of the largest problems in Fort Wayne is rampant nepotism. Our elected officials have a bad habit of choosing their relatives, their financial supporters, and the like to our public oversight boards. This needs to change.
It seems like the local Democrats and the local Republicans each have a pool of about 50 people they use to fill the local Boards. This pool is filled with relatives and financial supporters.
Not enough people get involved in politics and government.
One of the best ways we could involve more people in politics is to get new people to serve on the various Boards that exist in Fort Wayne and Allen County.
I would like to see people like Jeff Pruitt selected to sit on some of these Boards. We would be far better off...
I plan on asking Mr. Kelty about this in the near future. I hope one of the readers of this blog can find Tom Henry and ask him; otherwise, I am going to track Mr. Henry down and ask him myself.
