Mayor Armin Mizani has a passion for serving his community. Armin first served as a Keller City Councilman from 2014 to 2018, and in December of 2020 was elected to serve as Mayor of Keller, Texas. Armin has been recognized as “Best Local Government Official” by Keller voters and readers of the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Armin’s work in the community led to an appointment by Texas Governor, Greg Abbott, to serve on the Automobile Burglary and Theft Prevention Authority. In that capacity, Armin worked with law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Texas to combat the multi-billion dollar enterprise that is auto theft and crime.
Armin has focused on providing an energetic, principled, and idea-driven leadership style to Keller Town Hall. As Councilman, Armin Mizani heard from many taxpayers who felt that their property taxes was pricing them out of their own home. As a result, Armin introduced the first ever increase to the Keller Homestead Exemption in over 30 years. Armin has been recognized as a “Taxpayer Champion” fighting to reform the Tarrant Appraisal District and providing historic tax relief to Keller residents. During his time as Mayor, Keller has passed consecutive budgets which provided the single largest tax relief measures in Keller history – implementing tax rates at or below the “Effective Rate” and maxing out the Homestead Exemption which reduces the taxable valuation of keller taxpayer’s home by the state max 20%.
Armin is a strong supporter of Keller’s police and fire, ensuring Keller’s public safety professionals have the tools, equipment, and training necessary to keep Keller safe and remain among one of the safest communities in all of Texas. Lastly, Armin has championed historic levels of allocation towards the city’s core infrastructure such as streets and sidewalks, clearing a 6 year backlog to sidewalk repairs which had accumulated by the time he was first sworn into the Mayor’s office.
Armin is an attorney and business owner whose law practice has been recognized by national and statewide organizations. Armin and his wife Kathy are proud parents of 2 kids, Aiden and Kendall. They practice their Christian faith at Good Shepherd Catholic Community and are proud to call Keller home!
