Mike’s Work: Your Member of Parliament
Mike considers it an absolute privilege to serve as Member of Parliament for Edmonton-Wetaskiwin, the largest of Canada’s 338 federal constituencies, by population. He works tirelessly to serve his constituents, hosting events and regular constituent roundtable meetings across the vast consitituency, year-round. His solid commitment: if you are one of his 160,000 constituents and you want to meet him, he will make sure you get invited to a roundtable meeting to have your voice heard.
In Ottawa, Mike’s experience, having served in both government and opposition, is invaluable. He has served as Parliamentary Secretary for Industry and on a Cabinet sub-committee charged with creating and evaluating ideas to successfully balance the federal budget by 2015. In opposition, he has taken on a global leadership role, as a champion for the hardest to reach in our society and around the world. His view of conservativism includes a balance of strong, sustainable fiscal management, respect for personal freedom, and a relentless dedication to our most vulnerable citizens.
Mike is surrounded by an experienced staff, committed to work alongside Mike to serve the people of Edmonton-Wetaskiwin, helping to navigate federal programs, advocate for local projects, and ensure their concerns are heard by the people empowered to act on those concerns. One of Mike’s favourite quotations comes from NFL legend Jerry Rice, who said, “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t.” Mike lives that out every single day, and has built a reputation on all sides of the House of Commons as an honest, hard-working Member of Parliament who gets things done on behalf of the people he serves.
Mike welcomes any feedback or direction you have regarding his work on your behalf. Please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail the office, come out to one of his many constituent roundtable meetings (call to book a spot) or join the discussion on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram (@MikeLakeMP). As always, he looks forward to hearing from you!
