Speedway Town Council selects Carlos May as Town Manager

The Town of Speedway welcomed Carlos A. May as the new town manager on Wednesday, two days after the Speedway Town Council approved his formal appointment at a public meeting.

“On behalf of the Speedway Town Council, I am happy to announce we’ve selected Carlos May from a great group of candidates,” stated Town Council President David Lindsey. “We went into the search looking for someone who could take us to the next level as a town. We believe that Carlos can do that. His substantial knowledge of Marion County will help guide us moving forward and his experience and passion for public service will benefit our residents and businesses.”

May brings a notable amount of government experience to the role, having held the title of Senior Executive Policy Advisor to Mayor Ballard where he served as a director for Latino Affairs, Veteran Affairs, Neighborhood Services, and Special Projects. “I was fortunate to have the opportunity to serve constituents from numerous communities, demographics, and organizations throughout Marion County. I’ve also worked closely with many businesses, groups, and leaders that make Marion County a great place to live,” stated May. “I know I can use the connections and relationships I’ve developed throughout Indianapolis to continue to build upon the substantial progress taking place in the Town of Speedway and I’m eager to get started.” 

Most recently May worked in business development where he was responsible for new development in the areas of government relations, non-profits, and minority owned businesses in Central Indiana. Prior to his role with the City of Indianapolis, May also worked for Indy Eleven Professional Soccer briefly after running as a nominee for the US House of Representatives. In addition to May’s extensive work experience, he also holds an A.B. in Political Science from Wabash College and a J.D. Degree from Thomas Jefferson School of Law.

When asked what drove him to apply for the town manager position, May said that he wanted to get back to work serving the community. “We are facing unprecedented challenges right now. I know that we can not only overcome these obstacles, but also come out stronger than before. I want to help Speedway do just that,” he added.
