He and his wife, Ronna, are proud of their three children, Danyelle, Victoria, and Andrew. In 2015, Mike and Ronna created Harper Systems, LLC.
Mike began his public service in 2004 as Police Juror of District 3D for Beauregard Parish. He also served as a board member of the Beauregard Community Actions Agency. Mike was elected to the Beauregard Parish Fair Association and later elected to the Executive board of the Fair Association. He is a past member of the Deridder chapter of Rotary Club International. He currently serves on the Resource Advisory Committee for Kisatchie National Forest.
Mike had been a volunteer for the American Red Cross of Southwest Louisiana prior to serving as a Police Juror where he was trained in Mass Care, Shelter Operations, Damage Assessment and Emergency Response Vehicle training which was excellent preparation for the housing of Hurricane Katrina victims in August of 2005 and the Beauregard Parish damage in September a month later from Hurricane Rita. Mike had surveyed the parish schools as possible Red Cross Shelters as a volunteer and managed Shelter Operations for the Red Cross during hurricane Lily evacuations in 2003 and Shelter Operations at Merryville during Sabine river flooding.
Mike believes in government by the people and for the people. Although the regular management of the parish is what he was elected to do, Mike believes in involving the public in long term, major decisions. He spends much of his spare time building working relationships across various public agencies. This effort was proven successful in Beauregard Parishes 2005 response to the hurricane related events.
Mike’s continuous effort as a public servant is to create “Family Supporting” jobs for Beauregard Parish residents.
