Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight will serve as the first vice-president for the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns (IACT) for 2015.
“Mayor Goodnight is clearly one of our state and our nation’s leading mayors in the quality of place movement,” said IACT Executive Director and CEO Matthew C. Greller. “Having his perspective as an officer of our organization will only be positive for IACT.”
The 2015 IACT officers include President Duke Bennett (mayor, Terre Haute) and Second Vice-President Lloyd Winnecke (mayor, Evansville.)
“Indiana’s continued economic growth is contingent on the quality of life, health and success of its cities,” said Mayor Goodnight. “I am proud to join Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett to ensure that Indiana legislators recognize cities as the driving force for progress in Indiana.”
Mayor Goodnight currently serves on IACT’s executive committee as second vice-president and previously chaired the organization’s legislative committee.
IACT was established in 1891 to provide Indiana municipal officials a means to congregate educate and advocate their interests before the state and federal governments. A not-for-profit organization, IACT represents municipalities before state lawmakers, and provides education and information to members. With more than 460 municipalities as members, IACT is the official voice of municipal government in Indiana.
