Michael Redding Pengilly (born 13 June 1950) is an Australian politician who took over from retiring sitting member and former Premier Dean Brown for the safe Liberal seat of Finniss at the 2006 election.
Pengilly is a resident of Victor Harbor, and was formerly the Mayor of Kangaroo Island as well as Chairman of the SA Country Fire Service Board from 1995 to 2000. He was also the Chairman of the Hills Mallee and Southern Regional Health Service Board for 8 years.
Pengilly controversially labelled Prime Minister Julia Gillard a "dog" on social media site Twitter on 24 November 2011 following her increased parliamentary numbers in the House of Representatives. He is at risk of losing Liberal preselection for his seat at the 2014 election.
