National League of Cities Mourns Passing of Past President Mayor Bill Hudnut
WASHINGTON — December 20, 2016 — With great sadness, the members and staff of the National League of Cities (NLC) mourn William H. Hudnut III, who passed away Saturday. Following a stint in Congress, Hudnut served as mayor of Indianapolis from 1976 to 1992, where he helped lead the city through an economic and cultural renaissance. He continued his service later in life, when he served as the mayor of Chevy Chase, Maryland from 2004 to 2006. Hudnut served in NLC’s leadership in the 1970s and 1980s, including as the organization’s president in 1981 and as a member of the board of directors for more than 20 years.
“Today we mourn the loss of an exemplary public servant, who was also a friend to many of us in the National League of Cities community. Bill Hudnut leaves a rich legacy and will long be missed by all of those who knew him in Indianapolis, Chevy Chase and around the country,” said Clarence Anthony, National League of Cities CEO and executive director. “Our hearts are with his family, friends and the countless people who’s lives were improved by Bill’s unwavering dedication to building stronger cities.”
