City Hall

Mesa Firefighter Appointed to Phoenix City Council

The Phoenix City Council appointed Bryan Jeffries today as an interim representative for District 2. He fills the seat left vacant by Councilwoman Peggy Neely, who resigned to run for mayor.

Jeffries was one of four candidates vying for the interim appointment, and has indicated that he does plan to run in the August 30 election to fill that seat permanently. He faces six other candidates in the race for the District 2 seat.

Jeffries, a Mesa firefighter since 1995, has a master's degree in Legal and Ethical Studies from the University of Baltimore. 

A master's in Ethical Studies? Hmm.

That's gonna be a nice/interesting addition to the Phoenix City Council.
