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 !

Mayor Mike and one of “The Three Divas” Polly Krier performed a crowd-pleasing lip sync to raise funds for Soroptimist, an organization benefitting women and girls.
Christening the new Glenayre Spray Park
Mayor Mike and Councillor Barbara Junker (long-term Glenayre resident) celebrated the re-opening of the Glenayre Spray Park in 2017 (and soaked a few kids.)
Mayor Mike as the City Spokesperson
The Mayor’s role is to serve as the head of the municipal council and to act as CEO of the City, including presiding over Council meetings and speaking at City and community events.
Celebrating the Evergreen Line
The TriCities Mayors were thrilled to be among the first riders on the newly-opened Evergreen (aka Millenium) Line. Approximately 30,000 riders use this line daily.
Port Moody is Committed to Adding Trails
Racing, running, or just rambling through the many trails in Port Moody, Mike is like the rest of us who take advantage of the awesome trail system and wonderful green spaces in our city.
