Local News

CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — The former Mayor of Champaign has a new job.

Don Gerard is about to be a part-time groundskeeper for the Chicago Cubs.

He’s a life long fan of the Cubs.

He says it feels surreal that he’ll be spending a lot of his time at Wrigley Field this summer.

He says life is short, so when ideas like this come up, you’ve got to “play ball”.

He’ll stay in Champaign and only plans to be leaving town when duty calls.
