SOUTH BEND

As mayor, Pete worked across the aisle to transform South Bend into a 21st-century city and improve people’s everyday lives. Household income rose by 31 percent. Poverty fell by a third, and unemployment was cut in half. The city launched a tech education center and brought nearly $400 million in private investment to downtown.

At the same time, Pete worked to build a South Bend community where every resident could feel safe and included. His first-of-its-kind municipal identification cards for undocumented immigrants brought residents out of the shadows, while a small business incubator established in a historically-Black neighborhood worked to expand opportunity. And while South Bend’s turnaround continues, the people of South Bend have come to believe in their city once more.

Below are just a few of the many impressive stats from Pete's tenure.
