Message:
Michael is a lifelong resident of District 4, running on his experience and progressive vision for Salt Lake City. He served for six years as chair of the Central City Neighborhood Council, representing residents and business owners in District 4. He also spent four years on the Salt Lake City Human Rights Commission advocating for issues affecting marginalized communities downtown and across the city.

It’s time for Salt Lake City to set a progressive standard throughout the state. Michael believes that the city must be a leader in affordable housing, public transportation, environmental protection, and social justice. If elected, his top priorities will be to fund affordable housing developments, tackle the homelessness crisis downtown, ban discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community, implement ranked-choice voting, and stop the ecological disaster surrounding the Inland Port.

Michael is proud of his work advocating for the community over the last six years. He isn’t afraid to stand up for what’s right, either, and that’s why he called a public meeting to hold Mayor Biskupski to task for firing the city’s diversity director in late 2017. He’ll always stand up for his constituents, whether it’s standing up to the mayor or to the state legislature.
