Regional Council

Mayor Jerry Bien-WillnerWe are proud of the Town of Paradise Valley’s recent recognition as one of the safest communities in the state of Arizona, and the best place to live in the state. We know the importance of working with the leaders of our neighboring communities and Maricopa County to continue to plan for the responsible and seamless growth of our metro area, as Maricopa County continues to draw record numbers of new residents.
—Paradise Valley Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner


Mayor Skip HallIn Surprise, we have a city-staffed Human Service and Community Vitality Department and a Veterans, Disability & Human Services Commission of volunteers that work with amazing nonprofits throughout Maricopa County. Together, they support our veterans, those living with special needs, victims of domestic violence, those experiencing homelessness, our elderly, and so many others. With tight budgets and many competing needs, it is critical that we continue to forge these strong partnerships that keep our people fed, housed and employed. Together, we can make amazing things happen.
—Surprise Mayor Skip Hall


Mayor Cathy CarlatKeeping residents connected is one of the City of Peoria’s most important priorities. We were proud to work alongside regional partners to bring a new Park and Ride to our community. With pervious concrete to reduce the heat island effect, electric car charging stations, and exceptional connectivity to local and regional bus routes, this amenity is an important step toward our efforts to remain a sustainable, modern, and connected city.
—Peoria Mayor Cathy Carlat
