“Jeremy is a devout family man and loyal friend. You will be hard pressed to find a more passionate person once he sets his mind to something. Those rare qualities are evident in his ethical business practices and drive for a better community. Throughout the 13 years I have known Jeremy he opened a small one person IT Consulting business and turned it into a thriving company for his employees with a focus on customer success. Utilizing technology to solve problems is the future for the citizens of the City of Mesa and across the US. Jeremy is the best person to have on the Council to help steer the committee in the right technology direction. Jeremy is open-minded, will listen, but also has an opinion. His opinions are rooted in his thirst for knowledge. He is an obsessive reader, and you will likely find him at any given moment with a copy of the “The Economist”, an influential business book, a book on sustainable energy or a political figure’s biography. On a deeper personal level Jeremy and his wife, Roshana, love children, dogs, family and friends deeply and selflessly. Jeremy will be an exemplary council member with the City of Mesa’s citizens best interest in mind. Vote for Jeremy Whittaker!”

When Jeremy first told me about his intentions of running for Mesa City Council. My immediate thought was that there is not another person I have met who would be more fitting for the job. Jeremy is intelligent, hardworking, honest and a natural born leader.

I believe with these traits that Jeremy would serve as a great representative for the people of Mesa.

He’s a very articulate and informed individual, who also seems to have an inner drive to want help others who are less fortunate than himself. Because of that trait, I introduced Jeremy to a friend of mine who runs several foster care homes in area. Before long, I heard that Jeremy was donating several computers to their facility and installing them himself. He also offered them free tech support and asked if there was anything else he could do to help. I’m glad to call him my friend. If he’s elected I think the community of Mesa will benefit.”
