ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO): Allen County Commissioner Nelson Peters has announced plans to seek another term in office.

In an email sent to WOWO News, Peters cites 1.5-billion in economic development efforts in Allen County in 2019, plus more than $1-billion worth in both 2017 and 2018, as well as the mergers of the Emergency Management and Homeland Security departments among his accomplishments while in office.

“Now is not the time to take our foot off of the gas pedal,” Peters says. “We have made great strides in our permitting processes and Allen County has helped to develop a landscape providing great business opportunities.  We must maintain that momentum to ensure that companies will want to continue to expand and locate here.”

Candidates running for public office can start filing their declarations for the 2020 Primary today in Indiana.


  1. While I served as Chief of Police for Woodburn Nelson Peters made it a point to meet me and others in regards to matters that may effect citizens in and around Fort Wayne on issues from traffic, safety, commerce and more. I hope the citizens of Fort Wayne appreciate his experience and vote him into office to keep moving Fort Wayne forward.
