Mayor Cathy Carlat Biography  

Mayor Cathy Carlat 

Mayor Carlat serves the citizens of Peoria with a passion for the future and with a strong focus on employment and quality of life.

Mayor Carlat began her tenure as an elected official in 2005, as the Councilmember representing Peoria’s largest and fastest growing district. She embraced her role, tirelessly advocating for the needs of the citizens. Much of her time was spent making sure neighborhoods were protected during times of rapid change, ultimately tackling issues such as long range planning, economic development and transportation.

Always mindful of her fiscal responsibility, Cathy initiated Peoria’s robust recycling program, which has defrayed over $900,000 in costs that would have been passed on to residential ratepayers. She served as Chairperson for the Council Subcommittee on Policy and Appointments, Council Liaison to the Economic Development Advisory Board and served on the Council Subcommittee on Community Culture and Public Safety.

Mayor Carlat won re-election to the Council twice, in 2009 and again in 2013. During that time, she served as Vice Mayor in 2008 and again in 2011. Ms. Carlat was elected as Mayor of Peoria in 2015.

As Mayor, Ms. Carlat represents Peoria on a variety of Regional Committees, including Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Regional Council, MAG Transportation Policy Committee, Valley Metro Regional Public Transportation Authority, Greater Phoenix Economic Council, Luke West Valley Council, the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association, WESTMARC, and among others, Arizona’s Bioscience Roadmap Steering Committee with the Flinn Foundation.

Ms. Carlat has a strong understanding of the challenges facing business, as she herself once owned a small business and has held positions as a District Manager for a Fortune 500 Company and Vice President of a commercial real estate leasing firm. Cathy retired from the Communications Department of Central Arizona Project in 2015 where she had been employed since 2001. She and her husband Dennis have three children and three grandchildren.
