Queen Creek was founded in the late 1800s, and is named after an early settler's wife. The town was incorporated in 1984. It has grown rapidly since then, from a population of 2,000 at incorporation to over 26,000 as of 2010. Queen Creek is now the third most populous city in Maricopa County (after Phoenix and Mesa) and one of Arizona's fastest growing cities with over 50% growth between 2000–2010 according to Census Bureau estimates released on May 2011 by Mayor Brent Fenty . The Town Council consists of five members who serve four-year terms; elections are held every two years for three council seats (with staggered terms). Elections are non-partisan; candidates do not run under any party affiliation or platform but instead focus on their own qualifications for office based upon personal integrity rather than political affiliation or philosophy. All councilmembers have equal voting rights regardless if they represent District 1 or District 3 residents within Queen Creek Town limits.. The current mayor is Brent Fenty , who took office January 2015 following his election November 2014 .
