Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s Message of Support for McDermott for Congress

"In the decade I’ve known my fellow mayor and veteran Tom McDermott, I have seen his commitment and effectiveness in delivering results for the residents of his community. From his focus on growing jobs and economic opportunity, to his current leadership amid the COVID-19 crisis, he understands the issues that affect those he serves. His experience making tough decisions and getting things done—first as a Navy submariner, then as mayor of his city—will make him an excellent member of the U.S. House at a critical time in our country." -Mayor Pete Buttigieg

I couldn't be more proud to share this message of support that I received from Mayor Pete Buttigieg. As a fellow Northwest Indiana mayor, it was an honor to watch Mayor Pete rise to national prominence in his run to become our next president. His Indiana values and common sense approach to important issues like healthcare and climate change made these issues front and center during the Democratic primaries.

Election Day is this Tuesday, June 2nd.
