Councilman Roy Delgado has served on the El Mirage City Council for 11 years and was last elected in September 2012 to a four-year term. Delgado spent over 20 years in the U.S. Army and National Guard, as well as more than 30 years in management in the oil industry in California and Arizona. His current government service includes the Community Development Advisory Committee (CDAC), which oversees the flow of federal housing and infrastructure project funds received by Maricopa County and awarded on a competitive basis to local governments. The CDAC's funding recommendations are vetted and ultimately approved by the County Board of Supervisors.
Delgado is also a board member of the Citizens Advisory Committee of the County Library District. He was appointed to the position by Former Supervisor Max Wilson and, along with other committee members, serves as a liaison between the district's board of directors, the library administration, and the community.
Councilman Delgado is equally proud of his community service activities. He retired in January 2014 after years of service as a teacher of hunter safety for the Arizona Game and Fish Department. He is currently a volunteer usher for Luke AFB’s Catholic community; and he helps raise funds, along with his wife Sue, for student scholarships on behalf of Dysart Unified School District and the West Valley Neighborhood Coalition. As a member of the Elks, the American Legion, and two military officers’ associations, Delgado maintains strong ties with the Valley’s military community.
