Ex-Fort Wayne mayor likely done with politics
Former Fort Wayne Mayor Win Moses says he's likely done running for office after losing his bid for an 11th term in the Indiana House.
The 69-year-old Democrat tells The News-Sentinel that he plans to step away from politics and spend time with his family and run his business that owns apartment complexes and mobile-home parks.
Moses was a Fort Wayne City Council member in the 1970s before serving as mayor of Indiana's second-largest city from 1980 through 1987. He faced a campaign finance controversy while mayor but was first elected to the Indiana House in 1992.
Republican Martin Carbaugh defeated Moses in a district made more GOP friendly in redistricting. The campaign included criticism of Moses' role in the boycotts by House Democrats over the right-to-work law.
