Winnecke has been elected President of the Southern Indiana Mayors Roundtable for 2013. He's also been named chairman of the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns Public Safety Committee.
One of Winnecke's main roles as president of the Mayors Roundtable will be to help set legislative agenda for the state's General Assembly.
"I think it is vitally important to have someone of Mayor Winnecke's stature, who serves the largest city in Southern Indiana, to act as our president," said former Tell City Mayor Bill Goffinet. "He will work with other mayors in our region and carry their message to lawmakers in Indianapolis."
The Mayors Roundtable will meet monthly, beginning on January 24th, with the inaugural gathering being held at Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center.
