Local Candidate Elections

Elected Officials


The Mayor and six Town Councilmembers are local elected officials. There are no term limits in Fountain Hills, so there is no limit to the number of times an incumbent may run for office.

  • The Mayor is elected for a 2 year term.
  • Town Councilmembers serve staggered 4 year terms.
