Mayor Jerry Weiers

The Regional Council of the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has unanimously elected Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers as the vice chair of the Transportation Policy Committee (TPC). Mayor Jenn Daniels of Gilbert has been selected as the committee chair.
The TPC was established by state law in 2002 to oversee development of the 20-year regional transportation plan and to guide transportation planning in the region. The TPC has 22 members representing local elected officials from across the county, including the business community, the Arizona Department of Transportation, Maricopa County, and the Native American Indian Communities. The committee provides a unique opportunity for business representatives to have a direct say in developing transportation policy for the region. The TPC is charged with developing regional transportation policy positions and providing oversight for the implementation of Proposition 400.
Weiers said he is honored to now serve as vice chair.
“As our region continues to sustain economic growth, transportation infrastructure remains a key priority to our citizens and business community. The Maricopa Association of Governments will be making critical transportation decisions over the next few years, which will shape the future of our region. I remain dedicated to fulfilling the transportation commitments that were made to the voters, all of which will improve the quality of life and economic prosperity of our residents,” Weiers said.
In addition to TPC, Weiers serves on the MAG Regional Council and Regional Council Executive Committee. He was previously selected to serve as the vice chair of TPC in 2014 and as the committee chair in 2015.
