Born and raised in Massachusetts, Councilman Jack Palladino’s commitment to community began over 50 years ago with his service as a medic in the United States Army. After he married his sweetheart, Michele, he went to work for the U.S. Post Office as a letter carrier. Over the course of more than 30 years, Palladino’s hard work and perseverance were recognized and he was promoted to management in a U.S.P.S. Boston facility. During this time, he also volunteered as a Little League coach and served with the Knights of Columbus. Shortly after retiring in 2003, and working as a realtor in Mass. and NH, Palladino and his wife moved to Arizona where he worked part time for Pueblo post office. The Palladino’s have one son, a 13 year-old grandson, and a 7 year-old granddaughter who also live in the West Valley. The couple has been married for 49 years. After attending numerous local City Council meetings and volunteering in the community, Palladino decided to run for El Mirage City Council and was elected in 2010.
