INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Oct. 24, 2014)— Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard appointed a chief of staff Friday.

Jason Dudich, who is currently the City-County controller, will join the Mayor’s Office effective Oct. 27. He will succeed Ryan Vaughn, who has taken a position as president of the Indiana Sports Corporation.

“Jason has provided tremendous leadership during the last two budget cycles while working on many of our major initiatives,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. “His knowledge of city operations and budgeting will be extremely beneficial in this new role as we continue to accomplish big things to better Indianapolis.”

Dudich has served as controller for Indianapolis since May 2013. Prior to his appointment as controller, Dudich served as the associate commissioner and chief financial officer of the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.

“I greatly appreciate the Mayor’s confidence to take on the role of Chief of Staff and to continue to serve the citizens of Indianapolis and Marion County,” said Dudich. “I will endeavor to promote the great work the Mayor has accomplished in the last 7 years while continuing to champion the vision he has for Indianapolis in the future years. Much has been accomplished by our government, business, and civic leaders; but there is always more that can be done to make Indianapolis a great city. I look forward to working with the Mayor, the City-County Council, and all those vested in the long-term interest of City of Indianapolis in the near future.”
