FORT WAYNE, Indiana: Disappointment has set in with Fort Wayne Mayor John Henry, who voiced his displeasure with a lack of a casino referendum from the special session at the Indiana Statehouse. The city has spent a year and almost $40 thousand on it's effort to bring a referendum to Fort Wayne. Despite the recent setback, Henry stated that the effort on the city's part was well spent.[1]

"Whatever the future might hold on the issue of gaming, let me make one thing clear," said Henry. "I want the people of Fort Wayne to be able to make their own decision concerning this matter."

Henry said he'll now reassess the referendum issue with his staff to decide how, or if, they will proceed.
