Meet the City Council
The City Council acts as the legislative body in establishing policy and law for the City of Graham. The Mayor and Council members are chosen through city-wide nonpartisan elections. The Mayor, elected to a two-year term, serves as the presiding officer at City Council meetings. The four Council members are elected to staggered four-year terms. The board appoints a professional city manager, who provides policy advice, directs the daily operations of city government, handles personnel functions, and is responsible for preparing the budget.
