This week we joined municipalities across the state of to take part in the League of Arizona Cities & Towns' 18th annual Arizona Cities & Towns Week to highlight the people, places, programs and services that help make Chandler a great place to live, work, visit and play.

To round out the week, we focused on our elected officials who continually work to make sure these services are delivered seamlessly. Hear directly from them and why they choose to serve the City of Chandler.

Mayor Kevin Hartke

Mayor Kevin Hartke: I passionately embrace all things Chandler and have the desire, drive and knowledge to lead and represent this great community. My life experiences have prepared me to understand the role, integrity and sacred trust of serving a city. After nine years on Council, I knew my next adventure was to become Mayor.  





Vice Mayor Terry Roe

Vice Mayor Terry Roe: I first began to pursue a seat on the Chandler City Council in 2010 because of my concern for finance when it comes to government. Barely into the recession, I wanted to make sure that Chandler stayed fiscally stable through a difficult time. Through fiscally conservative policies and spending, Chandler was able to maintain its rock-solid foundation and now touts a AAA bond rating.






Councilmember Sam Huang

Councilmember Sam Huang: I ran for office because I wanted to serve the citizens of Chandler by enhancing their quality of life. I believe that quality of life and economic opportunities follow one another, and I have dedicated my time on Council to ensuring we lay a strong foundation for both.






Councilmember René Lopez

Councilmember René Lopez: I feel it is important to give back to the community in any way we can. I am fortunate to be able to give back and serve our community as a Councilmember so our City continues to be a great place to raise a family, live, work and play.







Councilmember Jeremey McClymonds

Councilmember Jeremy McClymonds:  I have always believed that commerce is the lifeblood of any community. As a City Councilmember, I am committed to creating and supporting economic development opportunities that best serve our diverse resident and business base.







Councilmember Matt Orlando

Councilmember Matt Orlando: This is my fifth term as a Chandler City Councilmember. I truly enjoy working with residents to resolve neighborhood issues. Chandler's outstanding quality of life is the reason people and businesses move here from all over the world, and I will continue to focus my efforts on building a community that is welcoming, safe and vibrant.





Councilmember Mark Stewart

Councilmember Mark Stewart: I ran for Council because I felt like it was important for everyday people to serve in a way that allows them to capitalize on their strengths.  I believe that we should put our community before politics in every decision; we are here to help one another and that comes in many different forms.  I hope to leave a legacy that helps people be proud of our city and brag about our brand. More importantly, I want to be sure our Constitution remains an integral part of our discussions.
