Rev. Michael C. Cooper - Mayor, Portage, Indiana
As a resident of Portage for over a decade, I have witnessed the stagnation of our city and the lack of progress in embracing the future. While new half-million-dollar home subdivisions have been developed, the older, affordable neighborhoods have been ignored and left without proper infrastructure, quality of life, and economic development. That’s why I am running for mayor, to refocus the city’s efforts on improving the experience of our residents, businesses, and visitors.
I am passionate about creating opportunities for education and community advancement in trades, traditional crafts, and the arts. I want to bring the social services that our residents need to improve all areas of our city with equity. Portage is a large and diverse city situated in a National Park, and I believe that positions us to be a driving force for green development and green jobs.
