Mike Allen For Mayor

Let’s Stand Together

The next four years will be a period of continued rebuilding and recovery, and we will need to work through it together. Our success will depend on strong, yet collaborative leadership to steward us through such unprecedented times. I possess the experience, knowledge and background to unite the new Council while being guided by principles of community service while putting the community first in our decisions.
  • Provide strong, effective leadership and governance alongside the newly elected Council.
  • Foster even better relationships with industry, local business and Indigenous communities.
  • Build on the community’s current priorities and adapt it to meet new challenges, post-pandemic.

We’ll Improve Together

A more detailed platform will be released in the coming weeks as I have the opportunity to engage with people and community leaders, as well as businesses, industry, workers and social profit organizations, to assist in identifying priorities for this dynamic region we call home. I look forward to these conversations and would be honoured to have the support of the residents of this region in serving as the next Mayor of our community.
  • What businesses have you run?
    I moved my family to Fort McMurray in 1993 to purchase Campbell’s Music, which I ran for 27 years until its closure in August of last year. We built the business from a small location downtown with 5 employees, to a more significant enterprise with 2 locations and 25 employees.
  • What hard choices have you had to make?
    As far as hard choices are concerned, any business owner can tell you, there are many to be made on a daily basis regarding finances, where to invest during growth periods, staffing and these decisions impact others.
  • What sacrifices have you made?
    I would suggest they were financial ( I had the majority of my savings put back into the business in order to continue operations when times were difficult), and personal – probably something I would change if I ever had the chance to do it again, as I put a significant focus on the business at times of building and branding it. As a result, I spent many hours away from home, supporting non-profit events, working after hours supporting customers and the result was the time taken away from spending that time with my family. So I suppose that is more of a sacrifice for them.
