The need to have broader representation of minorities in leadership positions in Mesa is discussed in this article. The majority of City Council and Mesa Public Schools board members are White males.
“All those (diversity) festivities, those are well and good, but do they get (subgroups) involved in leadership and civic participation?” said David Luna, the only ethnic minority on the City Council. “With Latinos, (SB) 1070 played a major role in how they felt about the city in general.”
The Mesa Public Schools-Mesa Community College Latino Advisory Committee and the Hispanic Leadership Institute’s East Valley branch have been working to do so, he said, with slow but steady success.
