Born and raised in Chelsea, Massachusetts, Councilman Jack Palladino’s commitment to community began over 40 years ago with his service as a medic in the United States Army. After retiring from active duty, he married his sweetheart, Michele, and went to work for the U.S. Post Office as a letter carrier. Over the course of more than 30 years, Palladino’s hard work and perseverance were recognized and he was promoted to management in a U.S.P.S. Boston facility. During this time, he also volunteered as a Little League coach and served with the Knights of Columbus. Shortly after retiring in 2003, Palladino and his wife moved to Arizona where he currently works part time for the Pueblo El Mirage Post Office. The Palladinos have one son, a nine year-old grandson, and a two year-old granddaughter who also live in the West Valley. The couple has been married for 45 years. After attending numerous local City Council meetings and volunteering in the community, Palladino decided to run for El Mirage City Council and was overwhelmingly elected in 2010. Palladino believes that one person can make a difference!
