Maggie Lewis Selected As City-County Council President

Lewis Makes History As Council's First Female President

The Indianapolis-Marion County Council made an historic leadership choice on Saturday for the 2012 Council term.

Councillor Maggie Lewis was selected by the Democratic Councillors and Councillors-elect as their nominee to serve as Council President.

When elected by the Council as a whole, Lewis will be the first female council president in Indianapolis history.

“I am honored to be selected by my fellow Democratic Councillors to serve as President. I have already reached out to Mayor Ballard to discuss how we can best work together to move our city forward,” Lewis said.

The Democratic-controlled Council filled out the rest of the leadership team by selecting Councillor Brian Mahern as their nominee for vice president, and Councillor Vernon Brown as Majority Leader.
