Apache Junction Mayor Jeff Serdy has been elected chairman of the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority (Gateway Airport). The airport authority board elects the chair and other officers from the six board members on an annual basis.

Gila River Indian Community Lieutenant Gov. Robert Stone will serve as vice chair, Queen Creek Mayor Gail Barney will serve as secretary, interim Phoenix Mayor Thelda Williams will serve as treasurer, and Mesa Mayor John Giles and Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels will serve as directors. The board elected its officers at its June 19 meeting.

“Gateway Airport is a major economic engine not only for the Phoenix East Valley, but the state of Arizona as a whole,” Chairman Serdy said. “I am honored to chair the board as we work together to build upon the recent success we have seen with SkyBridge Arizona, growing commercial passenger traffic and increased interest in the airport. The jobs created and economic impact to surrounding communities are vital to our growing economy.”

Jeff Serdy was elected mayor of Apache Junction in August 2016 and began his two-year term in January 2017. As an entrepreneur and avid outdoor enthusiast, Serdy is the founder and owner of AJI Sporting Goods, one of the largest privately owned outdoor sporting goods store in the East Valley.

Serdy was elected to two terms as a councilmember, beginning in June 2007 and was instrumental in the formation of the Apache Junction Focal Point and Community Tourism Committee. He has also served as a member of the Governor’s Tourism Advisory Council.
