2019 in East Valley: Quiet politics, lots of construction noise

Chandler Mayor-Elect Kevin Hartke


By Gary Nelson | East Valley Tribune

With the noisy political battles of 2018 finally over, the East Valley can expect relative tranquility on that front in the coming 12 months.

That’s not to say there won’t be some jockeying as the country braces for what is certain to be an epic campaign in 2020. But the political signs that littered every street corner in 2018 are gone, and governance on the local level is likely to be steady as she goes.

Of the four major East Valley cities, only Chandler will have a new mayor, as Kevin Hartke takes the reins in January from veteran public servant Jay Tibshraeny, who will become a justice of the peace. A few new names also will appear on area city council rosters.
