Chandler City Council voted unanimously during its Jan. 13 meeting to elect Council Member Terry Roe as the city’s new vice mayor. Roe will serve in the position through Jan. 12, 2023.

“For more than 27 years I’ve been a public servant—first as a police officer and now as an elected official—it’s been of one of the greatest honors of my life to give back,” Roe said in a statement. “I thank my colleagues for selecting me to serve in this capacity during my final year in office.”


Roe began his first term on the council in January 2015. He became a resident of the southeast Valley in 1965 before moving his family to Chandler in 1988. He enjoyed a 20-year career with the Mesa Police Department, serving as a police sergeant working in the DARE unit, the robbery detail, and the Center Against Family Violence and the auto theft and burglary units.

He was re-elected in 2018 for his second term on Chandler City Council, which is set to expire in January 2023.
