What My Supporters Say

"I have known and worked alongside Mike Baer for almost 20 years. During those two decades, I have had the opportunity to see Mike in virtually every situation of life one will encounter; times of hardship, challenge, struggle, grief, celebration, triumph, and joy. Through all these times, and more, I have never seen Mike waiver in his core beliefs, his care for people, and his desire to arrive at the right decision on any matter. He is a person I trust implicitly, believe in wholeheartedly and consider it an honor to recommend for the position of City Council."
