Mayor Lana Mook has called Arizona home for
more than 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), Board member of Western Maricopa Coalition (Westmarc), and Board member of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council (GPEC). 

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.

  • Successfully advocated for passage of an $8 million bond measure to provide El Mirage residents with a community recreational facility with swimming pool and a new police facility.

  • Protected basic services such as public safety by successfully advocating for the rehire of four first responders for the Fire Department after they were laid off in 2010. In addition, she encouraged the Police Department to address speeding throughout the community with the assistance of RedFlex photo radar.
  • Worked to develop El Mirage’s future economic base by approving projects to design quality transportation corridors throughout the City.  The design of El Mirage’s portion of the Northern Parkway project is ongoing and construction is expected to begin in 2016.  Reconfiguration of the Thompson Ranch/Grand Avenue/Thunderbird Road intersection is expected to commence in 2016, and major improvements to Thunderbird Road from 127th Avenue to El Frio Street are scheduled to be completed by mid-2016.
