Mayor Ballard Rededicates Capitol Commons after Former Mayor Bill Hudnut

Hudnut is Senior Policy Adviser with Bose Public Affairs Group based in Washington, D.C.

Bose Public Affairs Group LLC is pleased to join Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and the Indianapolis community in the celebration honoring our colleague and former Indianapolis Mayor William H. Hudnut III.

This afternoon, during a ceremony surprising Mayor Hudnut, Mayor Ballard and local dignitaries unveiled a brushed metal plaque naming the green space “Hudnut Commons” which is located at the northwest corner of Maryland Street and Capitol Avenue in downtown Indianapolis.

“The downtown that so many people enjoy today would not be possible if not for the work of Bill Hudnut,” said Mayor Ballard. “He gave the city its sports vision, the foundation and the facilities to make that dream a reality.”

Hudnut, a former mayor and congressman, is a senior policy adviser with Bose Public Affairs Group. With more than 30 years of public service as an elected official at the local and federal level, Hudnut provides federal relations representation to clients in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office.

Mayor Bill Hudnut is the longest serving Mayor of Indianapolis, serving from January 1, 1976, until January 1, 1992. During Mayor Hudnut’s 16-years in office, more than 30 major building projects took place downtown including expansion of the Indiana Convention Center and construction of the Hoosier/RCA Dome. The city also attracted the Indianapolis Colts, hosted the 1987 Pan Am Games, and created the Indiana Sports Corporation.
