Councilmember Bart Turner, Barrel District

A fifth-generation Glendalian, Bart traces his roots in Glendale to his great-great-grandfather Peter Forney, an Elder in the Brethren Church who, after having visited the area perhaps as early as 1884, moved from Iowa to Arizona to establish a temperance colony at Glendale in 1892. 

Prior to being elected to the City Council, Bart served his fellow Glendale residents in many capacities through a wide range of community boards, commissions, service organizations, and committees—including having served as President of the Glendale Historical Society, Glendale Arts Council, and the West Valley Child Crisis Center, and as Chairman of the Glendale Parks and Recreation Commission. 

Bart is the proud recipient of Glendale Community Council’s Volene Stockham Humanitarian Award recognizing a lifetime of community service and the Glendale Commission on Neighborhoods Spark Award recognizing leadership in neighborhood revitalization in the Catlin Court neighborhood.   Read More
