Biography

Born to Ralph and Shirley in Evansville, Lloyd Winnecke's parents were lab technicians at Mead Johnson. He graduated from Central High School in 1978 and attended the University of Evansville where he received a Bachelor's degree in communications.

For thirteen years prior to running for mayor, Winnecke worked as Senior Vice President and Marketing Director for Fifth Third Bank. Prior to joining the bank, Lloyd spent 17 years in television news, most recently as News Director at WEHT News 25.

Political career

County government

Winnecke has held office continuously since shortly after the 1999 city campaign, when he was selected in a GOP caucus to succeed then-newly elected Mayor Russ Lloyd Jr., on the Vanderburgh County Council. In 2002, in a County Council re-election campaign, Winnecke defeated Democrat Chris Walsh by 61-39 percent. Winnecke had a GOP primary opponent in his 2006 council campaign but no Democratic opponent. As a county councilman he spent three years as president and one year as finance chairman.

In 2008 Winnecke sought a County Commissioners seat and was unopposed. He went on to serve as President of that body. As a county official on both the council and the commissioners he balanced budgets for 11 straight years and held per capita spending to 43% below the state average.[1]

Mayor of Evansville

His first term as Evansville Mayor began on January 1, 2012. He is only the third Republican to head the City of Evansville since 1955. In his first year in office he fought for, and secured, a state-funded full cloverleaf at one of the city's busiest intersections at the Lloyd Expressway and U.S. Route 41.[2] He also sought to improve city hall's responsiveness through the use of a smartphone app that gives Evansville residents a way to report non-emergency issues to city government.[3]

In an effort to boost downtown development and conventions he spearheaded a number of related projects. In 2013 he successfully championed a new 253 room convention hotel adjacent to the Ford Center and Old National Events Plaza. The project included a $7 million subsidy for the hotel and an additional $13 million in public funds for a new parking garage, bridges connecting the hotel, Old National Events Plaza and the Ford Center, and improvements to the Events Plaza. Winnecke also proposed a downtown location for a new interdisciplinary academic health science education and research campus affiliated with the Indiana University School of Medicine - Evansville.

Personal

He lives in downtown Evansville. He is married to Carolyn McClintock and has one daughter, Danielle. A Roman Catholic, Winnecke attends St. Mary's Catholic Church in Evansville.
