Greagor resigns as Banks council president

Banks City Council President Christy Greagor submitted her letter of resignation April 28, citing personal reasons.

The five remaining councilors will vote whether or not to declare her spot, Position 6, vacant and elect a new president at their meeting Tuesday, May 13.

Greagor has served on the council almost six years.

She has also been involved with the Friends of the Library, Greenville City Park Management Committee, Banks Community Foundation and has been a contributor to a city-wide emergency response plan.

“I have a hard time saying ‘no’ when our community needs help,” Greagor wrote to the News-Times.

Greagor is looking forward to being home more in the evenings to help her four kids out with sports, activities and school work. It’s “kind of why I decided to be a stay-at-home mom and I got away from that over the last few years and missed out on a lot of their activities,” Greagor wrote.

Greagor’s husband, Steve Greagor, assistant city manager of Hillsboro, was recently placed on administrative leave from his position during an investigation into whether he knowingly communicated with an underage person on a dating website.

Greagor said there is "no connection" between her resignation from the council and the ongoing investigation by the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Banks Mayor Pete Edison pointed to Greagor’s work with Banks parks as “instrumental” in bringing plans for a playground, National Night Out activities, outdoor movie screenings and holiday tree lightings to fruition.

“She’s a very active member of the council and always fully participates in the issues,” Edison said. “She brings a really learned perspective and that’s something that’s really hard to replace.

“She’s been a great councilor and we will miss her. We wish her the best.”
