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 !

Getting Dunked for a Good Cause
Mike with MP Finn Donelly at the Golden Spike Days to raise funds for a local cheer squad. For some reason, there were a lot of willing participants tossing the balls at Finn and Mike.
Mike and Now-Retired Councillor Bob Elliot
Bob Elliot, particularly well-known in his neighbourhood of Glenayre, served on Port Moody Council for over 12 years and is known for his friendly approach to all and dedication to the City.
You Never Know Who’s at the Library
Pirates, puppets, and pyjamas. A perfect day for Mike to read with the kids at Port Moody Library. One of Mike’s favorite activity is giving out those summer reading medals.
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.
Canada Day with Premier John Horgan
Canada Day celebrations at Rocky Point are a key part of Port Moody’s annual Golden Spike Days. Somehow Premier Horgan received an “I Love Port Moody” hat for the special occasion.
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.)
