Harrisburg Mayor Named to Illinois Prisoner Board

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn is naming Harrisburg Mayor Eric Gregg to the Illinois Prisoner Review Board.       

Gregg would serve in the $86,000-a-year post until 2019 if confirmed by the Senate. Quinn announced the appointment Friday.     Gregg has been named to replace Mary Reynolds.      

Gregg was a union leader who ran as a Republican for the state House in 2000 but was defeated by then-incumbent Rep. James Fowler, a Harrisburg Democrat. It was the first Illinois House race to cost more than $1 million.      

The Prisoner Review Board considers the parole requests of inmates, reviews cases to determine whether parolees violated terms of release, and makes confidential recommendations to the governor on clemency petitions.
