Announcing his re-election campaign today, Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli pulled a candidate packet at the Prescott City Hall for the 2019 election cycle. Mengarelli won the election for Prescott Mayor in 2017 by amassing the largest vote total ever recorded in a Prescott mayor’s race. Mengarelli gives credit for his win in 2017 to his campaign platform of pledging to “preserve the best of Prescott, while enhancing the rest”. Over the past year, Mengarelli has kept that campaign promise by promoting smart growth and enhancing the services at the Prescott Airport.
Asked why he is running for a second term, Mayor Mengarelli said: “Although I am happy with our accomplishments in the past year, there is still much that can be done to maximize the potential of our great community. The areas of open space preservation, airport enhancements, government efficiency and accountability, and water management will require our dedicated efforts.”
Greg has lived in Prescott for the past 24 years, is currently the CEO of the United Christian Youth Camp, and was previously the President of the Prescott Unified School District Board. Greg grew up in Hiawatha, Kansas and graduated with a degree in Park Resource Management from Kansas State.
Greg and his wife Sheila, have nine children ranging in age from 10 to 26 years old, and one grandchild. He enjoys the great outdoors that Prescott has to offer and spends quality time with his family fishing, biking and camping.
