Tom Didier was elected to his first term in 2003 to serve Fort Wayne City Council's 3rd District. He served as President of Council in 2008, 2013, & 2017. Currently he co-chairs the Council's Public Works Committee.

Tom Didier's primary goal is to make Fort Wayne a prime destination for increased jobs and tourism revenue. To that end, he is focusing on how Fort Wayne markets itself to visiting families. One specific area Didier wants to improve is the signage on the principal gateway to the city, Interstate 69.

To effectively market Fort Wayne as a premier destination for tourists and employers, Didier plans to focus on community assets such as the outstanding park system, the vibrant arts community, active neighborhoods and the educational resource for children-Science Central.

As a salesman for U.S. Foodservice, Didier works with small business leaders throughout the city on a daily basis. He understands what a small business needs to grow and expand. He spends his workday solving problems that arise for customers and knows that the best solution to a problem is not a "quick fix."

Most notably, he sings the national anthem at home games for the Fort Wayne Komets hockey team. Didier is a member of the Becketts' Ridge Neighborhood Association.

City Council Districts

Links to information on the six council districts: Data + PDF Map + Image Map

Hello and welcome to the information site for the City Council's most currentCouncil Districts.. The map was changed in 2022 following the 2020 census. The state of Indiana mandates that redistricting take place at the state and local government levels every ten years when the Census occurs. Therefore, by law, the City Council districts needed to be adjusted not later than 2022 as part of the 2020 census. The law states that districts must have nearly equal population, follow natrual boundaries, be as compact as possible and not cross precinct boundary lines. Population adjustments are made by adding or subtracting Voting Precincts according to their population and compactness to an adjacent district. In this most recent endeavor (passed by City Council August 23, 2022) only one (1) precincts needed to be moved into a new district in order to achieve the necessary balance. This means fewer citizens will need to adjust to a change in district council representation. For any persons affected by changes in redistricting, the Allen County Election Board sends out notices to all registered voters in affected precincts.

The map numbers each of the six (6) council districts. By state law, a second-class city is divided into six council districts. Each district has a single representative; three councilmembers are elected at-large, who represent the entire city.  Information about how and where to vote can be found at https://allencountyinvoters.gov/.
