Loop 303 Update
John Williams was elected to the City Council from District 3 (Mesquite) in November 2007. As a teacher, parent, and husband, John brings a community perspective to his commitment to serve as a voice for all residents. John has been in Education and Sports Medicine since he and his wife Melissa bought their home in Surprise in 2000.
A graduate of Hofstra University in New York, John also holds a Masters in Health Science from Towson University in Maryland. His professional career began in Sports Medicine and transitioned into education when he and Melissa came to Surprise.
John is a certified teacher and for the last several years has been building the Peoria Unified School District's Career and Technical Education Sports Medicine program. He has been selected by his peers to be the program lead.
John and Melissa have three children, Connor, Ashlyn, and Matthew. Melissa and John are animal lovers and have opened their home to numerous animals in need including Blaze, the three-legged cocker spaniel whose life was extended for 8 years after they took him into their home in 1999.
“I want to give my kids, our kids, the opportunity to be part of a community of connection and opportunity. In 15 years, I hope my oldest, Connor, can attend the next great university right here in Surprise. I hope when he graduates he will have the option of building his own family here because we will have grown a sustainable economy that offers high quality jobs to our residents. These are my hopes and dreams. I believe working together, we can make them happen.”
