FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The three current Republican mayoral candidates got some face-time during a candidate forum on Wednesday.

City Council Woman Liz Brown, former Allen County Council President Paula Hughes and political unknown Fred Osheskie addressed the Downtown Republican Club about their credentials and vision for running the city.

Democratic Incumbent Mayor Tom Henry's name also found its way into the discussion.

Allen County Republican Chairman Steve Shine said, “I think all of them think that our city has been stuck in neutral. I think all of the accomplishments that have been touted over the past few weeks have been those started by a predecessor in office and not by our sitting mayor."

The candidates also used the platform to highlight their management styles and philosophies for running the city.
