He was elected to the office of Mayor of the City of Arlington in May 2003 after serving two terms on the city council.[1] He represented Council District 4.

Cluck then served in the United States Air Force from 1966 to 1968 and returned to medicine with an OB-GYN residency at Parkland Hospital. From 1971 to 1994, Cluck was in private practice as an obstetrician-gynecologist in Arlington.[4] Cluck served in the U.S. Air Force for two years, serving during the Vietnam War as a general medical officer at Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines.
