Michael Muzychka
Mayor Michael Muzychka

Michael Muzychka was born in Calgary and moved with his family to Olds in 1973. The Muzychka family were very involved in their new community and witnessed the growth and struggles of Olds first hand, especially through the 1980s. Following graduation, Michael moved back to Calgary to continue post-secondary studies. He graduated from SAIT in 1991 with a diploma in Hotel and Restaurant Management. Michael has owned his own restaurant, managed a Re/Max Real Estate Office, managed multiple auto dealerships and has worked in the accounting field since 2004. Following a yearning for small town living, Michael moved his accounting firm to Olds in 2013. Michael has been blessed with three children, Paige, Ethan and Izabella, and of course his partner Lisa Dobush. Michael is excited to bring his extensive and diverse experience in business to the Mayor's office. In 2018-2019, Michael will serve on the following authorities, boards, committees and commissions: Emergency Management/Disaster Services, Inter-Municipal Cooperation Committee (ICC),  Municipal Area Partnership (MAP), Olds Institute Technology Committee and will serve as an Alternate for the Mountain View Regional Waste Management Commission (MVRWMC), Municipal Planning Commission (MPC).
