The two-term senator’s campaign is built around the phrase “Gary Deserves Better NOW.” Melton said the use of “NOW” was intentional, standing for “No Opportunities Wasted.”
GARY — “I am running for mayor because Gary deserves better right now,” state Sen. Eddie Melton, D-Gary, told the crowded room Wednesday evening.
“Gary has always been resilient, now it is time for us to be prolific,” Melton said.
It was standing room only in the small storefront located at 3669 Broadway, which will serve as Melton’s campaign headquarters.
Attendees chanted “We’re ready for Eddie” as Melton got behind the podium.
