my love for parker
The place we call home.
I have worked to change the small business environment in Parker to support and promote locally owned Parker businesses.
I have been, and will continue to be, a significant supporter of the women and men who serve our citizens through the Parker Police Department.
Regular community outreach including my yearly “Mayor’s Challenge” has allowed our citizens and their government to come closer together, making Parker a better place.
PARKS AND RECREATION
I am proud to be part of the award winning Parker Parks & Recreation department. The innovative and incredible programs and facilities our citizens can enjoy are second to none.
Arts & Culture
With state of the art cultural facilities, like our PACE Center, and a dedicated Cultural Department, Parker offers its citizens many vibrant cultural experiences.
By understanding that the citizens of Parker are entrusting their tax dollars to their elected officials, I help Council make responsible financial choices that maximize the quality of life in Parker.
I pride myself on being open and accessible to our citizens. As Mayor I respect and honor the role our citizens have entrusted me with and believe in the full transparency of our government.
Just a regular guy, doing what he can to make our world a better place.
After marrying my high school sweetheart we moved to Colorado in 1997 and to Parker in 2000. We are raising our two sons here and are proud to call Parker home.
I am the owner of Mike Waid & Associates, Inc. which is a full service marketing and advertising agency. We are also the publishers of Search Parker Magazine.
I have a Political Science/Economics degree from the University of New Mexico and have been an entrepreneur since starting my first business in 7th grade. My business experience and fiscal conservatism allow me to represent the citizens of Parker effectively and efficiently.
I believe in full citizen engagement and the encouragement of all of us to embrace our civic responsibility to leave our community better than we found it.
