Past Gilbert Mayors

Gilbert Mayors have listened to residents since the Town was incorporated on July 6, 1920. Our Mayors have fought for this Town and have led its celebrations. Together, through an intertwining process consisting of hard work and heart, our Mayors have triumphed in creating a Community of Excellence. As we celebrate 90 years of Gilbert history, we thank them for their hard work and guidance as we look ahead to a future that is brighter than ever.
