About Mike

I believe in fairness & Accountability

  • I’m not a politician. I’m a retired reporter who believes in fairness & accountability. I spent 40 years as a journalist, studying and presenting both sides of issues for the public.

  • I’m a father, a husband, and a grandpa who believes the County Commission should work for you— the hard working tax-payers in our community— rather than special interest groups, developers, or friends of commissioners.

Leadership you can Trust

  • If elected, I promise to listen to the community, to base my decisions on fairness and science, and to work hard to make our community the best it can be.

  • My past management experience includes serving as a department head, supervising 40+ people and managing a million dollar budget.

  • I've won awards, including two regional Emmys, for excellence in reporting and anchoring your local news and a certificate of appreciation by the City of Wichita.

  • I believe in giving back to the community, which is why I'm running for this seat at this challenging time. My past volunteering includes serving as a board member for the March of Dimes, working with the American Diabetes Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Crop Walk. I've supported journalism scholarships through the Society for Professional Journalists.

  • As the son of a WWII Veteran and father of an Air Force Captain, I fully support our military.
