FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- Creating jobs, improving public safety, opening lines of communication.

All goals of the three Democratic candidates for Fort Wayne City Council's Sixth District.

13 year incumbent Glynn Hines, former NAACP leader, Reverend Michael Latham, and a member of the 122nd fighter wing, Leon Williams debated Wednesday night.

Their levels of experience may set them apart.

Glen Hines says, “I hope to get a contrast from what my experience presents versus the inexperience of the two candidates who are running against me, some who have been unsuccessful at everything they've done and the other who is just a neophyte.”

“I think I've got a lot of new ideas and a lot of experience that Glynn's not aware of in this community for a long time working with folk,” says Reverend Michael Latham, “The difference between me and him is I just have not been on city council.”

Leon Williams says, “I am a very hard worker and I am a result driven individual and I will get things done. I am not a politician.”
