Thomasson: Welcome to reelected, new members of Paradise Valley Town Council


Congratulations to reelected town of Paradise, Valley Mayor, Jerry Bien-Willner. The Jan. 5 swearing in ceremony with a standing room only crowd of hundreds was testimony to his broad and deep support as he continues to lead the Town for the next two years.

Congratulations also to newly elected Vice Mayor Scott Moore. As an experienced council member, humble and thoughtful leader and very knowledgeable land-use professional, Scott is well poised to support the mayor, council, and planning commission in the coming year. I enjoyed my recent term as vice mayor supporting the planning commission and council and learning from Mayor Bien-Willner. 

I also extend my warm congratulations to newly elected Councilmember Christine LaBelle and reelected Councilmember Ellen Andeen.  Their volunteer service is appreciated by all.

In the next four years, I plan to work with our Town Council to focus on three priorities:

  • Keep our town safe and free from crime,
  •  Keep Paradise Valley, Paradise Valley by making sure our quiet, residential character is preserved while we thoughtfully consider resort development and actively manage short term rentals, and 
  • Support our Town staff as they continue to improve resident communication and increase community engagement. You deserve nothing less.
