Clea McCaa, Sierra Vista’s New Mayor

Clea McCaa has made history by not only becoming the first Democrat elected in a Republican stronghold, but also by becoming the first Black mayor of Sierra Vista.

Clea McCaa can now add Mayor of the city of Sierra Vista to his long list of responsibilities. McCaa made history after being elected the city’s first Black mayor and doing so as a Democratic in a city that has long been a GOP stronghold. For years, he has given back to the city he was born in, from starting an after-school youth program called Sierra Vista Dream Center to handing out food boxes once a month in Fry Town. When he started his campaign for Mayor he began “Walking on Wednesdays” to hear from residents about the issues going on in Sierra Vista. He will now begin perhaps his most challenging assignment: Guiding Sierra Vista into a new era of change.
