State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) sponsored Senate Resolution 775 honoring McElroy’s life of service.
“Mayor Mike McElroy was a proud, dedicated civil servant who was committed to improving the city of Decatur. Decatur is truly a better place because of his life and work, and his example will live on as a testament to hard work and civic pride,” Manar said.
The resolution states that the Senate, “mourn the passing of Michael ‘Tuna’ McElroy, and extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and all who knew and loved him.”
McElroy passed away last month and had served as mayor since 2009.
