Mark is a husband, father, business owner, military veteran, board member of the Roper YMCA, planning committee member for the East Winter Garden Boys and Girls Club and six year board member of Winter Garden’s Planning and Zoning Board. He believes deeply that citizenship includes serving others. That’s why he proudly served 32 years in the National Guard. Mark is also a past President of their HOA board.

Mark has never run for political office before and is normally a “behind the scenes team player” who helps when a job needs to get done. When the Winter Garden District 3 Commission seat became vacant, many encouraged him to run. As the father of three children and grandfather to one, Mark agreed because he wants all of our children to grow up in the best and safest community possible.
