He spent 25 years with the Greeley Police Department, retiring in 2003 as a police sergeant. After retirement, he accepted a position as Chief of Safety and Security for Greeley-Evans School District 6, a position that he still holds. John earned an Associate of Arts degree from Aims Community College and is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute’s Administrative Officers Course at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky.
John was elected to the Greeley City Council in 2009 and re-elected in 2013. He served all eight years on the city council as Mayor Pro-Tem. In 2017, John ran for Mayor of Greeley and was elected with 84% of the vote. On November 21, 2017, John was sworn in as Greeley’s 49th Mayor.
Much of John’s adult life has been devoted to serving the community by volunteering on various boards and committees as a way to give back to the city that he loves. He currently serves on the board of directors for the Greeley Chamber of Commerce, Youth and Family Connections, Upstate Colorado Economic Development and is a member of the Weld County Child Fatality Review Committee. His past board affiliations have included the Greeley Stampede, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Weld County, the Island Grove Treatment Center, Suicide Education Support Services, the Homeless Blue Ribbon Committee, Weld Project Connect and the American Cancer Society’s Cattlebaron’s Ball, to name a few.
John has been recognized as the Citizen of the Year by both the Greeley Area Realtor’s Association and Youth and Family Connections. He recently received the Spirit of Advocacy award from the Sexual Assault Victim Advocate Center.
John is married to Patty and has two step-sons, Jared and Zach St. Aubyn, and five grandchildren. John says, “Basically, I’m just a real normal guy who happens to be the mayor. I love to ride my Harley Davidson and I have been to the Sturgis rally for 12 straight years.”
