Councilmember Kallimayor Richards
Councilmember Kallimayor Richards was born in the Caribbean on the island of Jamaica and raised here in Arizona. Observing hard working parents while growing up in the valley led to a strong work ethic and entering the workforce at 15-16 years old. Despite a variety of jobs over the years, a passion for helping people and technology have rooted themselves with him. He has lived in El Mirage since 2015 with his wife, Freda. They purchased their first home in 2017, just before welcoming their son, Isaac, that same year.
For the past ten years Kallimayor has been working in the technology field with strong elements of customer service at Apple and American Express.
Volunteering throughout the years has been highly encouraging to Kallimayor and led to the interest in helping on wider scale and more integrated platform. Some of the experiences over the years that he has enjoyed are: children’s ministry at church, men’s basketball outreach and training teachers and students to use technology.
Kallimayor is hoping to promote positivity and improve communication and city pride while serving on the council. Working with the rest of the council, he’s confident the momentum started can continue and propel El Mirage forward.
