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
Acting Mayor for the DayIt’s critical to get our young people interested in the democratic process. Mike was pretty happy to relinquish the Mayor Chair to his young Port Moody constituent.
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.
