The longest continuous running business in Gilbert is still owned and operated by the sons of Tom Clement. Tom came to Gilbert to run the garage and service station in 1934. He raised his family here and later served as the Mayor of Gilbert from 1949 to 1955. Tom also oversaw the first sewer system installed in Gilbert.
