Hi, I’m Mike. I was born and raised in Leawood and have lived throughout Johnson County my entire life. The opportunities this county has afforded me have given me the chance to succeed. We know this is a great place to live, run a business, and raise a family.

None of that happens by accident. I am committed to continuing the tradition of service that has made Johnson County a premier county and am dedicated to working with residents to define our future. Together, we will continue creating a Johnson County we can all be proud of.


Lifetime roots. Executive experience. Innovative leadership.
