Mike was born and raised in a union family in Duluth and graduated from East High School and UMD with degrees in Management Information Systems & Marketing. He is proud to call Duluth home and is currently living in the Chester Park neighborhood in District 2 with his partner, Melissa. As an involved community member, Mike has helped organize and lead efforts in Duluth to preserve postal services, support our public schools, and to combat gun violence. He currently serves on the City of Duluth Community Development Committee, which makes recommendations for how to spend federal dollars that Duluth receives to support community members who are struggling economically.
As your city councilor, you can count on Mike to advocate for our community and push within city government to create a more equitable, accessible, and just city. Mike is running because he's committed to creating housing options people can afford; supporting good jobs at good wages; and ensuring we have streets we can drive on, sidewalks we can walk on, and water we can drink. Let’s work together to make sure Duluth is a place where everyone can thrive, both now and in the future.
