Surprise City Manager Mike Frazier

By Jen Fifield | Arizona Republic

There’s a faded picture of Mike Frazier from when he was 22 and graduating the academy to become a police officer in Phoenix.

He’s standing up straight, donning a pressed blue uniform with a wide grin and a gun on his hip.

Frazier said that young man in the picture had always wanted to be a police officer, but had no idea what career he had ahead of him.

The Surprise City Council appointed Frazier as the new city manager on Tuesday.

After rising through the ranks in Phoenix, he became police chief in El Mirage, then police chief in Surprise, and then crossed into administration as Surprise’s assistant city manager in 2015.
