About Councilmember Arredondo-Savage

Councilmember Robin Arredondo-Savage is a proven leader who has successfully built regional partnerships and collaborated on multiple initiatives that have delivered positive outcomes to increase value for Tempe and create opportunities for its residents.

Robin was raised in Tempe and graduated from Arizona State University. She served honorably in the U.S. Army and has turned that experience into a strong advocacy for veterans by leading efforts for Tempe to become the first Veteran Supportive City in the state, developing Valor on 8th, the veterans’ family housing project in Arizona, and establishing the Tempe Veterans Commission.

Robin was elected to the Tempe City Council in March 2010 and has been proactive in the city's education and economic development policy with results. She's led efforts to connect STEAM programs with youth, business and community through Geeks' Night Out in partnership with the AZ Scitech Festival and created College Connect, a partnership with Tempe Schools, Arizona State University, University of Arizona, Northern Arizona University, and Maricopa Community Colleges. Robin collaborated with her council colleagues to create an Equal Pay program for local businesses and formed an aerospace industry coalition to attract and retain this valuable economic driver for the state. Additionally, she collaborated on the development of the Regional Opioid Action Committee and was active in several outcomes including opioid prevention education in Tempe high schools, the opioid data dashboard, and the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act.

She is Vice Chair of the National League of Cities’ Human Development Committee, and a member of its Youth, Education and Family Council, and a board member of the Hispanic Elected Local Officials Constituency Group. Locally, she is a board member of Valley Metro, the regional public transportation agency, East Valley Partnership, Tempe Tourism, Tempe Coalition, and The Veterans Directory Advisory Board.

Prior to her time on City Council, she served on the Tempe Union High School District Governing Board for eight years including two years as President of the Board and was past Board Chair of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce. A principal partner in a small business, Robin is an advocate for fiscally responsible and responsive city government designed to protect Tempe’s unique quality of life through smart development, neighborhoods, schools and a strong human services network.

Robin has been married to Chris Savage for more than 25 years and they have two sons, Joey and Jaren.
