Mike Lindberg (born January 1941) is an American politician who served on the Portland, Oregon City Council from 1979 until 1996. His tenure of 17 years, three months was the longest of any city commissioner in the past 40 years, as of 2009; Lindberg's tenure was surpassed in May 2016 by that of Dan Saltzman.
Lindberg was appointed to the council in September 1979, to fill a seat caused by the appointment of Connie McCready to the position of mayor. He was subsequently elected to the office and served until the end of 1996, when he retired. He currently works as a lobbyist and political consultant.
Lindberg is married to his (second) wife Carolyn and he had one daughter, Lisa, and twin boys from his first marriage. He was raising his granddaughter, Caitlin, after Lisa's death at 43 in 2007.
