  Over the years, Mila Besich-Lira has spent at least 20 hours a month working on community activities. This passion for helping others began when Mila was in high school, when she became involved in the Superior Substance Abuse Coalition, an organization she continues to be involved with today.

Over the past eight years, Mila has strived to help her community through politics. For example, she served on the Superior School Board and Town Council. For Mila, politics suits her well and she is excited to use her time and resources to help make Superior an even better place to live and work.

Currently, Mila is a member of the Superior Chamber of Commerce, where she has also served as Secretary and on the Board of Directors.

Mila attributes her passion for helping people throughout Superior and the surrounding region to her strong family values.
