About Greg:

Mayor Greg Stanton delivers results for Arizona families, with a focus on creating good jobs and building a strong local economy that works for everyone. Under his leadership, Phoenix has created thousands of quality jobs and recently saw the highest wage growth in the nation.

He’s earned a reputation of working across the aisle to get things done — investing in the biosciences, helping small businesses create jobs, earning national recognition as a leader on LGBT equality, and passing a transportation infrastructure plan that will triple Phoenix’s light rail system.

Before his election as mayor, Greg served nine years on the City Council and as Arizona’s Deputy Attorney General. He attended Marquette University on the Harry S. Truman Scholarship, and earned a law degree from the University of Michigan.
