Eric Gregg, the Mayor of Harrisburg, IL, officially stepped down this morning.
Gregg resigned his position as Mayor after two years. He turned the position over to Councilmember Ron Crank, a man he calls a colleague and a dear friend.
The two have a special bond as they have each beat life-threatening illnesses, offering both emotional and physical support to each other along the way.
Gregg has seen the small town through a lot in the last two years. He says he has the community to thank for making the most of his term: "Through a flood, a tornado and a personal sickness, I've done my best to see this city through to a brighter future and you have stood with me every single step of the way," Gregg said.
Gregg has accepted a job with the state as a member of the Illinois Prison Review Board but plans to still be very active in the Saline County community.
