Mayor Lana Mook has called Arizona home for nearly 30 years. After retiring from approximately three decades in management, training and patient relations in the health care industry, Mook devoted much of her time to volunteering in El Mirage, pursuing her commitment to do everything she could to improve her community. With a number of other community volunteers, she co-founded the People of El Mirage (POEM), a civic-based community organization focused on helping those in need, as well as informing the public on local issues. Under her leadership, the organization promoted local support for Luke Air Force Base, raised funds for local Cub Scouts and participated in numerous food and clothing drives for the area’s residents in need. In addition, POEM members partnered with local public safety officials to increase safety and awareness in El Mirage neighborhoods.
In 2010, Mook was elected Mayor of the City of El Mirage.  She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Arizona League of Cities and Towns, the Executive Committee of the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG), the Executive Committee of the Western Maricopa Coalition (Westmarc), the Board of the Valley Metro/Regional Public Transportation Authority, and the Transportation Committee of the National League of Cities.
                       
           

Mayor Mook has provided many years of service to a number of organizations including the Phoenix Suns Charities, the Girl Scouts of America, the U.S. Forest Service (Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl Fire Prevention Programs), and is a past
Vice-President of the Greater Phoenix American Bowling Association.
