Community Coordinator - North Eastern-Alta Canyon #18
Mike and his wife Becky moved to Sandy in 1989 with their two young children. They have since expanded that family to include four more children and now five grandchildren. They left Sandy briefly in 2001 to work in Gillette, Wyoming but were grateful for the opportunity three years later to return to Sandy. When asked why he chooses to live in Sandy, Mike’s response was pretty simple. “Sandy is a unique place to raise a family. We love the outdoors and the family-friendly activities that surround us. We enjoy the parks, trails, the 4th of July celebration, the Amphitheater, and the list goes on.”
Mike served on the City Council from 1996 to 2000 and enjoyed being part of the master planning process that has now resulted in so many wonderful amenities we all enjoy. Since 2002, he has served as Community Coordinator for Community 18, which stretches along Sandy’s northern border with Cottonwood Heights to the east and includes the Willow Creek area. He served as a member of the Public Utilities Citizens Advisory Board for a number of years during which time Sandy City master planned their water and sewer systems and reviewed their street lighting master plan.
When he is not enjoying time with his family, you can find Mike fishing, camping, hiking, cycling and traveling.
