Statement on the Passing of Former Indianapolis Mayor Bill Hudnut

Posted by chamberadmin on December 18, 2016

"As mayor of Indianapolis for 16 years, Bill Hudnut was decades ahead of his time. The man who said "you can't be a suburb of nothing," positioned Indy for explosive development in downtown and in our urban neighborhoods. He helped take Indy from "India-no-place" to a city that is consistently ranked in the top tier of U.S. cities for sports, culture and livability. Because of Mayor Hudnut, Indy now competes on a different plane, attracting and growing internationally successful companies, organizations and top talent."
