Indianapolis Mayor-elect Joe Hogsett named three new cabinet appointments Thursday focusing on neighborhoods, outreach and the city’s long-term health.
Hogsett officially appointed David Hampton, Senior Pastor at Light of the World Church, to Deputy Mayor of Neighborhoods. Former Warren Township Trustee Jeff Bennett has been named Deputy Mayor of Community Development. And former Lt. Governor Kathy Davis will head up an initiative to examine the city’s finances and strategies for long-term growth.
Hogsett named former Public Safety Director Troy Riggs as his Police Chief and kept Ernie Malone as Fire Chief.
The Mayor-elect has yet to name a Chief of Staff or a Deputy Mayor for Economic Development.
