I’m proud to be a Port Moody native, the best city in the World !

I grew up here and deeply cherish the City’s history, so it is an honour for me to help lead Port Moody into the future.

Like you, I love Port Moody and that’s why I continue to advocate for a strong community that embraces change and remains the most amazing city.

I served on Port Moody Council for 13 years - Councillor from 2005-2011 and Mayor from 2011-2018.   I am proud to have a led a Council and Staff team that delivered many community enhancements and planned responsibly for the future, and the work that I did in the region with our neighbouring municipalities.

I am committed to a livable, accessible city with vibrant public spaces, healthy neighbourhoods, sustainable mobility, a diverse and resilient local economy, and an affordable housing market.  And to celebrate our Arts and Culture and support our designation as 'City of the Arts'.

The world is changing at a rapid rate, and I believe strongly that it is important to embrace change, not deny it, and to move forward !

In the Community

Honoring a Tireless Voice for the Homeless

2017 Car-Free Day Draws 20K Pedestrians

Mike’s vision of Port Moody’s first Car-Free Day was realized August 2017. St.Johns Street was bustling with fun, food, and festivities for all. Will you be at the 2018 Car-Free Day?

Operation Red Nose

Mike is a regular volunteer at Operation Red Nose, getting people home safely during the holidays after a night on the town.  Proceeds go to KidsSport.

Metro Vancouver Leadership

Mike has a number of responsibilities with Metro Vancouver, including chairing the Housing Committee and serving on the Electoral Area and Utilities Committees.

Pink Shirt Day

Mike commits to volunteering each year at Pink Shirt Day – a day to raise awareness about the prevention of bullying and cyberharassment, particularly with youth.

Don’t Make Me Mad!

Paparazzi everywhere. Who wouldn’t want to interview the Hulk (also known as the Mayor) at one of the fun-filled events around town? What was the rest of Council wearing?
