HARVEY, Ill. — South suburban Harvey has a new mayor.
Alderman Christopher Clark is projected to win the race.
Clark got the most votes leading into the runoff. He led a successful bid for term limits, preventing the incumbent from seeking a fifth term.
Clark defeated park district president Anthony McCaskill
Both have been embroiled in a lawsuit against each other.
They are vying to succeed outgoing mayor Eric Kellogg. In addition to being forced out because of term limits, Kellogg also appears to be under federal investigation for the alleged shakedown of a local strip club. The feds raided city hall one month ago and charged six people including “two” of the mayor’s brothers.
