State Rep. Moses says political career done after loss

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 3:49 pm

The surprising upset of state Rep. Win Moses, D-Fort Wayne, in Tuesday’s election likely marks the end of a long – and sometimes turbulent – career in local and state politics.

In an interview Wednesday, the 69-year-old Moses said he would step aside from his career in public office – which included terms on Fort Wayne City Council in the 70s and as mayor in the 80s – to spend time with his family and run his business.

“I worked hard to do my job well, and now I’m relieved of it,” Moses said. “I still have time to get some other things accomplished, but it will probably not be in politics.”

Republican Martin Carbaugh defeated Moses by a decisive margin, scoring 52 percent of the vote to 44 percent for Moses in Indiana House District 81.
