Gary Gardner, Council Member



Current Term: December 2022 

Serving since December 2018



Welcome to Desert Hot Springs. When I retired, I could have moved just about anywhere, and I chose Desert Hot Springs, probably because of same reasons you may have – our gorgeous desert and fantastic views, our access to outdoor recreation, our award-winning water and mineral spring spas, our small-town feel, and our affordable housing. If you haven’t already, you’re going to find that Desert Hot Springs is an amazing place, with great people who look out for each other.


You’ll also find a responsive and accessible City Government. I’m here to represent you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any concerns or issues you may have. I have open office hours every week on Mondays from noon to 2pm at City Hall, and you can stop by without an appointment.  I’ll also be very happy to schedule a meeting at a time that is convenient for you if those hours don’t work.

You can reach me at or call me at 206-669-0548 to set something up. I want to hear from you.


Together we can make Desert Hot Springs the best place to live in California.
