Greenberg has served as town clerk since April 2013. During his four-year term, he worked to increase voter registration at senior residences. He organized the township records and duly oversaw the destruction of old records per Illinois law.
Prior to his election, he served for two years as a member of the Naperville Township Veterans & Seniors Assistance Team. During his time with the team, he worked with the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce on the Hiring Our Heroes job fairs.
