About Mike Ward

I have lived in Sedona since 2002. I served on Sedona City Council from 2010 to 2014. It was a role I enjoyed, and I felt that I made a difference in the quality of life for Sedona residents. I was Vice President, followed by two years serving as President of the Friends of the Forest from 2005 through 2008, and I have a pretty clear understanding of Forest Service restraints and the forest land that surrounds us. Although I have cut back on my forest service volunteer activities, I still volunteer a half day weekly, serving Sedona visitors in the Red Rock Ranger District Visitor Center. I spent two years on the Keep Sedona Beautiful (KSB) Board of Directors. I served with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Verde Search and Rescue Posse for 14 years, serving as the Posse Captain for six years and as First Training Officer for two years. I am a Sedona Police Field Service Unit Volunteer transporting arrestees to the County Corrections facilities, assisting with traffic accident scenes and traffic control for major Sedona events. I am also a proud veteran and Sedona Area Veteran Community Outreach (SAVCO) member. This all-military branch member organization has taken up the local Marine Corps Toys-For-Tots program in Sedona and the surrounding areas.
