Bio

Family man, grandpa, farmer, Business Owner, Public Policy Advisor, and Community volunteer. Mike Kohler is a life-long resident of Midway, Utah. After a few years of college, he came home to run the family dairy farm due to the illness of his father. In 1997, when the business could not grow enough to take care of everyone involved, Mike sold his portion of the farm to family pursuing other interests. In 1998, he became involved with local politics as a member of the Wasatch County Commission then later a member of the Wasatch County Council where he served for 16 years. During this time, Kohler worked closely with residents to solve difficult challenges facing the county such as sustainable growth, general planning, transportation planning, transition zones, and public utilities in coordination with local municipalities and Special Service Districts. He also expanded his involvement in the agricultural industry. Currently, he represents the state's dairy industry and other agricultural interests in the development and implementation of public policy regarding agricultural sustainability, agribusiness, irrigation distribution, and water quality. Mike's experience gives him a valuable understanding of the challenges facing the state and local government entities.

Mike studied Agricultural Economics and Accounting at Utah State University; he later studied economics at the University of Utah. Mike impressed upon his children the value of education and encouraged them all to receive a college education.

Mike Kohler is married to Laurie Kohler, and together they enjoy creating memories with their six children and 21 grandchildren. In his spare time, Mike enjoys driving his tractors (especially the "orange" tractor), growing hay, raising cattle, spending time with grandchildren, and completing an ever-growing list of projects around his house.
