My name is Chris Judd and I am honored to have been elected as your City Councilman for District 6. I am a native to Arizona and a graduate of Arizona State University. I have been a part of the Surprise business community since the mid 90’s. My family and I have lived here for over a decade and we have experienced the growth and changes that Surprise has undergone in that time. I look forward to working with the City of Surprise and my neighbors to ensure our beautiful community is impacted in positive ways. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, or if you have an idea or concern, please let me know. I am available to discuss any questions or concerns you have so please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
