Madison native Clinton McKay has been named chief of staff for the Indiana House Democratic Caucus, according to House Democratic leader Scott Pelath.

McKay, who has served a number of roles on the House Democratic staff since 1999, will oversee personnel and decide policy positions for the caucus.

He returns to the staff after serving as assistant director for Anthony Wayne Services, a Fort Wayne-based organization that provides employment opportunities for adults with disabilities.

"I was pleased when Clint agreed to come back to serve as chief of staff, because he has had a long history of dedication and service to the ideals that form the backbone of the agenda that drives Indiana House Democrats," Pelath said.

During his time at the Indiana House, McKay has served in a number of jobs, including four years as principal clerk of the House from 2006 to 2010 and a previous tenure as chief of staff from 2004 to 2006. He has been a legislative policy director, a fiscal analyst, an intern for the House Ways and Means Committee, and a legislative assistant.

McKay also served as a member of the legislative team for Gov. Frank O'Bannon and analyst for the State Budget Agency.

He is a 1994 graduate of Madison Consolidated High School, and received his bachelor of science degree in business administration from Indiana University Southeast.

McKay is the son of Chuck and Cindy McKay. He and his wife, Rachel, have three children: Madison, 11, Spencer, 8, and Claire, 4.
