Vice Mayor Joe Ramirez has been proud to call El Mirage home for more than 50 years. He graduated from Dysart High School and attended Glendale Community College before beginning work in the construction industry, which led him to a 30-year career that included owning his own construction firm. A straight-to-the-point individual, Vice Mayor Ramirez has always been a supporter of El Mirage and the West Valley. In addition to serving on the City Council, he volunteers his time on numerous civic projects and participates in local events including the Christmas Toy Drive, the Clean Our Community Program, and Habitat for Humanity. Ramirez invites residents to learn more about the issues in the community and join him in working toward a better El Mirage.
