Candidate for Mayor of Maple RidgeHello, I’m Mike.

The reason you have come to my site is to find out about me and council in Maple Ridge, BC.

To those that voted for me in 2008 and 2011, Thank you. I will continue to work hard and do a good job for you. Our future in Maple Ridge is exciting, we will experience unprecedented growth over the next decade and I would like to continue to serve my community as Mayor of Maple Ridge.

Here is what I will do for our community…

I will advocate for you, make sensible decisions for you, and work hard for you. I will do it well because I am not a politician. I am a regular hard working person that will do whatever it takes to get results for us, the taxpayers.

My ongoing resolution is to advocate for the transition of the historical Maple Ridge to the future Maple Ridge in a respectful, thoughtful, and well-balanced manner for those who live here now, as well as the 60,000 projected to arrive over the next 30 years.

I will strive to encourage the creation of employment  – real jobs which will provide real careers; to attract commerce and industry to provide those jobs and create a healthy, thriving economy, as well as seek the needed services, from all levels of government, to support our citizens and businesses. Maple Ridge is going to grow without any doubt, and I promise to help guide that growth in a common sense and responsible manner.

For me it’s not about politics, it’s about people and wanting to be a common sense leader working within our current political and bureaucratic structure to achieve the absolute best for what matters most to me – my community.

I look forward to your comments!  Thanks again for visiting, Mike.

  1. Which current councillors are you aligned with? If you don’t want to answer that question, how about who are the current councillors you hope to work with during the 2011-2014 term?

    • My apologies to not getting back to you sooner. I didnt get a notification that your email had been sent to me. Firstly I would appreciate knowing who I am conversing with? secondly the current council has done some great work this last two years and I dont have any issue in continuing that with the same team. Maybe if you want to continue this conversation, please email me directly at (until I get this notification bug dealt with from my site!) Thx
