Sherman ends 40-year reign in Steger


But the 85-year-old is not quite retiring.

Until earlier this month, Sherman was the village president of Steger, a position he held for 10 four-year terms.

That falls short of the 51 years served by Donald Stephens as village president of Rosemont until his death in 2007, or the 50 years already served — with two years remaining on his current term — by Bob Butler, the mayor of Marion in southern Illinois.

Edward Paesel, of the South Suburban Mayors and Managers Association, said Sherman’s stint is a record for the region, with only Gerald Bennett, of Palos Hills, and Edward J. Zabrocki, of Tinley Park, both first elected in 1981, coming close. Please click here to read the rest of  Gregory Tejeda’s story in the Times.
