Gilbert man eyes 2024 mayoral race

Shane Krauser

By Cecilia Chan || Gilbert Sun News/Managing Editor

At 51, Shane Krauser has worn many hats throughout his career – Maricopa County prosecutor, law firm partner, radio talk show host, adjunct professor and public speaker.

He now wants to be Gilbert’s mayor. Krauser plans to make a formal announcement Jan. 6.

“So this isn’t something where we kind of sat around and said, ‘let’s give it a shot,’” Krauser said recently. “We’ve been talking the last four months, involved in dozens of meetings with individuals in town, at the state and the national level – is the time right, can we play a role at having an impact?”

According to Krauser, those individuals include state Senate President-elect Warren Petersen, R-LD 14; Cindy Biggs, who serves on the Gilbert County Island Fire District Board and is married to U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ; former U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon, who dropped out of the governor’s race in 2022 and Gilbert Councilman Laurin Hendrix, whose last day in office is Jan. 10. Hendrix was elected to a state House seat in November.

Krauser said he has also met with “the average citizen out there and getting feedback from them.”

He may be unknown to the general public but he says he has deep roots in Gilbert.

He grew up in Mesa and in 1981 his parents bought a home in Gilbert, which is still owned by the family. He spent his teenage years working at a business in the Heritage District and he’s raised his six children for the last 20 years in Gilbert.

These days Krauser travels around the world and state speaking on the Constitution, leadership and liberty. He’s also penned a book, “Your Nation to Save: A Line-By-Line Explanation of the US Constitution.”

Krauser has never run for elected office, served on any town board or commission or graduated from the Gilbert Leadership program – where participants learn about local government and the challenges and demands facing the town.

But he said he’s been involved behind the scenes.
