Council Member Mike Pasley
Elected 2023 - 2027
My wife, Linda, and I have called Lake Quivira home since 2018.  We have a Son and Daughter who live and work in KC and get to enjoy the Lake occasionally as well.  We get to share the Lake with two of Linda’s sisters and their families. We enjoy walking the lake, boating, social events, playing tennis and hopefully begin to golf.  I serve on the ARB committee. I am hopeful that my background in business ownership will translate as an asset to the City Council.  I have come to love and I am committed to supporting Lake Quivira’s core values of environmental stewardship, preservation of our unique character and lifestyle, safety, security, and quality amenities.
