Mike Anderson has lived in Colorado for nearly 30 years, with the past 15 of those being in Lone Tree. Raised in Gratton, Connecticut, Anderson studied engineering at Northeastern University, then pursued a career in industrial engineering. After college he went into the Navy and served in Vietnam before returning to civilian life and joining the energy industry. He traveled around the country during his 32 years working as a project and technical manager for a major oil company.
After retiring in 1999, Anderson began working with the Men's Club at the Lone Tree Golf Course, and has been active with the organization for nearly 20 years. Anderson said it was the encouragement of friends that prompted him to increase his community service.
“I've always loved being involved in my community, and about eight years ago my friends encouraged me to run for a spot on the South Suburban Parks and Recreation board,” said Anderson. “From being on the SSPR board I've made a lot of contacts with partners, both in the community and with businesses, and I just feel it's a natural fit. I know my neighbors well, I like what the city has done for growth so far, and feel I can be useful in the capacity of city councilmember.”
Anderson said it's his love of the Lone Tree community that has prompted him to run for the open city council position to represent District 2.
“I love the Lone Tree community. The open spaces, parks and trails, facilities we have, all of it,” said Anderson. “The city has done some good things in terms of bringing in the medical community with Sky Ridge, and the financial community with Charles Schwab. It's just a great place to live.”
“I think it's important the city moves forward and continues to grow. We don't have a large population yet, and we need to make sure as we grow that the needs of the existing city is well thought of as well as the opportunities for growth,” said Anderson.
Anderson has been married to his wife Cheryl for 45 years and has three children, five grandchildren and one great grandchild. He loves to walk his dog in the areas around Lone Tree.
“I would appreciate your vote," he said. "It's been an honor to serve South Suburban Parks and Recreation and I'd like to continue with my public service with the City of Lone Tree.”
