A Message from Mike Bufalo

I will always stand by the men and women who protect the life and property of others while risking their own safety. When elected I will work not only with the residents and elected officials in Cooper City, but throughout Broward County to bring a better understanding of Fire-Rescue to the forefront. I also hope to be able to collaborate with our neighboring cities to provide an unprecedented level of service at the most cost effective manner possible.


Dear Cooper City Resident,

Let me begin by saying, it is my honor to announce my candidacy for Mayor of Cooper City in our November 2020 election.  I believe there is no greater trust a community can grant one of its members than to be chosen as an elected official.  

Having spent my adult life as a public servant, I have experienced firsthand, just how great an impact our elected officials can have on a community, both good and bad. It is a role that some are well suited for, while others may not be. 

So what makes an honorable elected official and why should you give me the opportunity? Let me explain.

I believe a great leader should personify certain qualities, the most vital being: compassion, understanding, leadership and trust. Over 20 years ago, I made the personal decision to dedicate my life to helping others in my community. The decision was born from a love for my community and all of its members, regardless of age, sex, race or creed. 

When someone is at their most vulnerable, is when they rely on trust most. In my experience, when citizens call on their community helpers in moments of crisis, there is an unspoken trust that is palpable. This is the relationship I hope to build with our community as Mayor. One built on compassion and understanding, knowing that I will always do what’s right to protect each and every resident, even if it means risking my own well-being.

Then there is the ability to lead. Not just be a leader, but lead with strength and nobility. I am experienced in leading men and women who are willing to risk their lives for others because they trust I will keep them safe.  I promise to be this type of leader for our residents. A leader who looks ahead and not behind. The type of leader that will always do the right thing, even when others are not looking.  

This is who I am and this is why I hope you will trust in me to lead our great city into the future.  If elected, I will bring respect, direction and fiscal responsibility back to our city commission. 

The days of infighting and arguing from your city commission will be a distant memory and in its place, a focus on civility, accountability and leadership. I look forward to leading this great city and keeping it “Someplace Special”.

I look forward to your vote! 

Mike Bufalo
