The Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC has issued the following statement on Former Mayor Stephen Reed’s passing:
Steve Reed was a rare visionary whose 35 years of elected public service, 28 as Mayor, was focused on restoring and re-inventing Harrisburg as a great city. Our city, our region is simply a better place because of Mayor Reed. He was a friend and a champion of the Chamber & CREDC. He was a catalyst for our region in the truest sense of the word. On behalf of our members, our Boards and Staff, we offer our sympathies to his family and those men and women who worked with him throughout his life of public service to the City he loved.
