A former mayor of Evansville has been picked as the temporary leader of the Indiana United Ways organization.

The group that helps coordinate the 44 local United Ways across the state says Jonathan Weinzapfel will serve as interim president and chief executive officer through the end of 2021.

Weinzapfel says United Way groups stepped up tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic to raise and distribute money to families in need and assist the state’s nonprofit organizations.

Weinzapfel served eight years as Evansville’s mayor and was the Democratic nominee for state attorney general in the 2020 election, losing to Republican Todd Rokita.

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
