Mayor & City Council
Mesa operates under a charter form of government with citizens electing a
mayor and six councilmembers to set policy for the City.
Mesa's councilmembers serve terms of four-years, with three members being
elected every two years. The mayor is elected at-large every four years. The
mayor and council are elected on a non-partisan basis. The vice mayor is
selected by the City Council.
The Mesa City Council believes that its people, not leaders, are what
makes a City great and actively works to encourage
citizen participation in the decision-making process. Whether it is
through neighborhood meetings, advisory boards and committees, telephone
calls and letters, or email, the Mesa
City Council sets policies based on the input and needs of its citizens.
