Councilmember Christopher Glover - District 4

Councilmember Chris Glover

The youngest person ever to serve on the Mesa City Council following his election at age 23 in 2011, Councilmember Chris Glover was re-elected to a second term representing District 4 in August of 2014. He was named Vice Mayor in April 2014, serving in the position until January of 2015.

Glover is a native of Mesa, attending Mesa Public Schools, graduating with honors from Mesa High School and he was a member of the Mayor's Youth Committee. While at Arizona State as an undergrad, Glover earned certificates in both Latin American Studies and International Studies and was a Capitol Scholar and Junior Fellow. He also studied at Universidad de Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Glover earned a degree in Political Science with minors in History and Spanish from Arizona State University. He also spent a summer in Washington, D.C. as an intern for Senator John Ensign (R-Nevada). He also earned a Master of Science in Management from the W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He currently serves as an adjunct professor of Business Communications at Mesa Community College and associate professor at Arizona State University.

His family history ties directly to Mesa. His great-grandparents, Wilford and Ella Farnsworth, came to Mesa in 1948 from Mexico. His mother's parents, Dr. Eugene and LaVieve Swenson, followed and have lived in Mesa for almost all of their married life. His father's parents, Harry and Patricia Glover, came to Arizona in 1956. They fell in love with Mesa and its charm and decided to live here. Christopher's parents, Mark and Ann Glover, have lived in Mesa for almost their entire lives. Glover has lived in Mesa for his entire life, except the two years he spent in Argentina on a mission as a representative of his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
