Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett has announced he will run for re-election this November. The third-term Republican mayor was first elected to the position in 2007.
"During my entire time in this office, we have worked very hard to make Terre Haute a better place. In spite of a significant loss of property tax revenue we have eliminated several fund deficits, have a balanced budget and have still continued to invest in our community," Bennett said in a statement Friday. "I have great department heads and a city workforce that strives to deliver positive results to our citizens every day."
