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

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?

Celebrating PMPD’s Newest Recruit

Mike chairs the Port Moody Police Board. Chief Constable Dave Fleugel and Mike welcome the City’s newest 2018 recruit to the Port Moody Police Department. “No call too small.”

Plunging into the New Year

Every year, hundreds of participants rush crazily into the Burrard Inlet to commemorate the new year at the Penguin Plunge. Someone in this photo needs a haircut. It’s not the dog.

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.

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.

Volunteering at Crossroads Hospice

Crossroads Hospice Society provides compassionate care to those affected by the end-of-life experience. Mike has supported this amazing organization with many hours of volunteer service.
