HUNTINGBURG — Huntingburg Mayor Denny Spinner has been elected as Accelerate Indiana Municipalities’ next association president. He will succeed Nashville’s Brenda Young in 2019.


Spinner was elected by the membership this week at the 2018 Aim Ideas Summit in French Lick.

“Denny is an optimist about municipal government and what we can achieve when we work together,” said Aim CEO Matt Greller. “One can’t look at Huntingburg without seeing his enthusiastic and collaborative approach imprinted throughout the community. Mayor Spinner is a listener. He seeks information in an effort to make the best possible decisions. I am thrilled with our membership’s decision to elect Mayor Spinner.”

Spinner said he is proud to serve as president of AIM.

“I see it as an opportunity to give back to an association that has meant so much to me in my growth as a municipal leader,” he said.

Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson will serve as first vice president and Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer who will serve as second vice president. All three will take office Jan. 1, 2019.

An advocate for Indiana municipalities, AIM is the official voice of municipal government in Indiana, with more than 460 cities and towns as members.
