About Michael

Michael CollinsThe foundations of my desire to serve as your next Mayor are my belief in community service and devotion to making a positive impact. My experience as a long-time Chief Executive Officer and my recent and relevant experience in Paradise Valley government leadership will enable me to execute a transparent and accountable limited local government that is dedicated to excellence in quality of service to our residents.

I have exceptional performance in the private sector as a business owner and chief executive. I have exceptional performance over the past seven years volunteering in Paradise Valley town government. I have the advanced education and practical experience to understand the critically important land-use and infrastructure challenges that a Mayor and Council face. I am committed to our community, and have an ability to lead our town with great vision and a demonstrated respect for residents.
