Der Gr:  Beigeordnete Johannes Bachmann

The ... alderman J. Bachmann

What Gr: means I don't know. Hopefully someone else can bring you the solution

Hi,

It could also be something like Gemeinderat (local/municipal council), but difficult to say without more context.

Best regards,
Karen

I would say Gemeinderat.
