The Indiana House voted unanimously to rename part of US 20 in Lake County, the section known as Fifth Avenue in Gary, for the late Rudy Clay. Gary Democratic Senator Earline Rogers authored the resolution. Clay, who was mayor of Gary from 2006 through 2011, died last June at the age of 77 after battling prostate cancer. Clay was an Indiana State Senator, and County Recorder, County Councilman, and County Commissioner in Lake County before serving as Gary's mayor. The measure also passed the Senate unanimously.
