After four terms (and more than a decade) as mayor of Maricopa, Christian Price resigned last week to accept a position as CEO and president of the Maricopa Economic Development Alliance, a public-private partnership that works directly with companies to help them evaluate options to locate in the city.
In a sit-down interview with InMaricopa editor Justin Griffin before his public announcement, Price recalled his crazy, early years as mayor and looked ahead at his forthcoming leadership role, which he views as an extension of his work on behalf of the city. And he shared his goals as MEDA’s chief.
He also spoke candidly about the sacrifices he and his family have made over the last 10 years, adding the decision to resign and join MEDA only came after discussion with family, and prayer.
