Miles Atkins has announced he will not seek re-election as Mayor of Mooresville in 2023.  Miles has been a committed public servant in Mooresville since being elected as a Commissioner At-Large in 2007, and then as Mayor since 2011.  


“Representing and serving the greater Mooresville community for the past 16 years has been an honor.  After an ample amount of introspection, I feel now is the time to explore new possibilities, therefore I have decided not to seek a seventh term as mayor in the upcoming municipal election,” says Atkins. “I plan on enjoying the on-going celebration of Mooresville’s 150th Anniversary, while keeping an eye on opportunities to serve in 2024.”

“I feel privileged to have been a part of establishing a more seamless and diverse Mooresville community, where all citizens, in all neighborhoods, enjoy safe streets, access to amenities, and opportunities for a good quality of life,” added Atkins. “I am sincerely grateful for all the support I’ve received over the years and look forward to a bright and promising future.”

As Mayor of Mooresville, Miles has put experience to work achieving great things for our community.  He has steadfastly been a Mayor who represents ALL citizens of Mooresville and has continued to prioritize fiscal responsibility and government transparency.  As a strong believer in accessibility and community engagement, he has personally implemented programs like the Youth Council, Veterans Benefits Assistance, Senior Roundtable, Mooresville Community Needs Taskforce, Mooresville Citizens Academy, and No Agenda Needed sessions. He has been a consistent advocate for a diversity of crucial social issues such as anti-bullying, suicide prevention, substance abuse, domestic violence, veteran assistance, accountable healthcare, and racial equity.
