Mike is proud to call Duluth home. The city’s great parks and trails, strong sense of community, and unrivaled access to Lake Superior are just some of the things he loves about Duluth.

He looks forward to working collaboratively and in community with Duluthians from every neighborhood across the district- from Kenwood to Endion and Chester Park to Congdon.
