Mayor. Wikipedia defines the word as “the highest-ranking official in a municipal government such as that of a city or a town.” With that title comes a great deal of responsibility, and for Greg Cromer, it is one he wears with great humility and respect.
As the mayor of Slidell since 2018, Cromer has seen the city through some of the most trying times in recent history. Political unrest, racial tension, economic crises, hurricanes, and a worldwide pandemic have all befallen the nation, impacting the city at a cellular level that would challenge even the strongest leadership. Through it all, Cromer has never lost sight of his mission, which is to guide his city with strength and courage.
Beginning his political career in 2002, Cromer spent the next 16 years working his way through various aspects of the inner workings of local and state government, serving as a member of Board of Zoning Adjustment as well as the Slidell City Council from 2002 to 2008 before he moved on to the Louisiana House of Representatives. Serving there from 2008 until 2018, he left the HOR to take office as mayor.
