Jenn Daniels is an American politician who first entered the political field in December 2008 when she filed to run for town council in Gilbert, Arizona as a self described "homemaker" [1]. Early in her initial campaign Jenn Daniels came out against Big League Dreams[clarification needed] in Gilbert by saying "I have no problem with public/private partnerships but the way Big League Dreams went down was absolutely devastating. It was a great idea but was done efficiently? No." [2] In May 2009, after a runoff, Jenn Daniels emerged as the top of what started as a 7-person race for two seats on town council [3]

Serving on town council for Gilbert, Arizona from 2009-2016 and after serving as vice-mayor from 2011-2012 Jenn Daniels began serving as the Mayor of the Town of Gilbert, Arizona in 2016. This opportunity came when John Lewis resigned his post to become president and CEO of East Valley Partnership. Mayor Daniels was elected to a four-year term in August 2016 [4]

In addition to her mayoral duties, Daniels serves on many regional boards including the Maricopa Association of Governments Regional Council, the Regional Transportation Policy Committee, the League of Cities and Towns and the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport Authority. [5]
