George Gregory Cromer, known as Greg Cromer (born June 26, 1958),[1] is the Republican mayor of Slidell in St. Tammany Parish in southeastern Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. After trailing in the first nonpartisan blanket primary on March 24, 2018, Cromer won his runoff contest on April 28 against fellow Republican Kevin C. Davis (born May 13, 1955), a former president of St. Tammany Parish government. Cromer received 2,239 votes (51 percent) in the second race to Davis' 2,159 (49 percent).[2]

From January 2008 to June 29, 2018,[3] Cromer has been a state representative for District 90 in St. Tammany Parish.[4] Prior to his legislative service, he was the District G city council member in Slidell.[5]

Cromer graduated in 1981 with a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial management technology from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond in Tangipahoa Parish.[6] He was formerly employed in New Orleans by Lockheed Martin at the Michoud Assembly Facility of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.[7]

Cromer was elected to the House in 2007 when the term-limited Matthew Peter "Pete" Schneider, III, ran unsuccessfully for the Louisiana State Senate.[4]

Slidell is also represented in the House by a second Republican, Joseph Kevin Pearson of District 76, who joined Cromer in a dual town hall meeting in April 2011.[8] Cromer served on the House committees on Civil Law and Procedure, Governmental Affairs, and Retirement.[7] Pearson was the chairman of the Retirement Committee.[8] Cromer and Pearson have developed a close working relationship and often appear together at civic meetings before constituents. The two issued a joint press release in June 2011 on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico: "The economic impact is already being felt in our community, and we will take all appropriate steps to address the situation from every possible level."[9] Cromer has also addressed the issue of flooding in the Slidell area and the required steps to remedy high water.[10]

Cromer and the St. Tammany legislative delegation worked to procure the widening of Interstate 12 from four to six lanes in the Slidell area, a $26 million project. In the dedication of the project, then Governor Bobby Jindal, a Republican, said that the state has spent $122 million in transportation projects in St. Tammany Parish alone since 2008 and $3.6 billion statewide on roads and ports. The state from 2008 to 2011 spent $220 million in the I-12 corridor from East Baton Rouge Parish to St. Tammany Parish.[11]

In 2012, Representative Cromer resigned his membership in the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, of which he had been the Louisiana state chairman.[12]
