Hi, I'm Mike Greer

04-10-2012 10;30;12AM.jpg


I have been happily married to Shannon Greer for 51 years, and together we have raised five children and now enjoy the company of our thirteen grandchildren. Our family is the bedrock of my life, providing both joy and a deep sense of responsibility.

As a proud resident of Del Norte County for the past four years, I have developed a strong connection to this community. My professional background as a special education teacher has enriched my understanding of the unique challenges and needs in education, a field I am deeply passionate about.

A pivotal moment in my career was during the California Paradise fires, where I led the Paradise Unified School District Board through rebuilding while serving on the school board. This experience, during the tumultuous Camp Fire period, honed my crisis management skills and underscored the importance of resilience and community solidarity in the face of adversity.

My life's journey, marked by family dedication, community involvement, and a commitment to education and public service, shapes my approach to leadership. It's a journey that reinforces the values of empathy, responsibility, and the importance of serving others.


My journey into politics is driven by a desire to bring back common sense to California's governance. I am committed to addressing the challenges of high living costs, ineffective government spending, and the deterioration of essential services like education and public safety. My experience in facing and managing issues such as the Camp Fire and the Oroville Dam failure has equipped me with unique insights into the needs and struggles of our communities.
