submitted by the candidate or their team
Mark is motivated by his students and his two sons. He has spent his lifetime searching for innovative solutions to global challenges and he always started with a community approach. Now it’s time to serve on council in the community where he has always served as a leader.

Saanich stands out among Canadian municipalities; it could stand as an example for the rest of the world. Please send Mark to Saanich Council to do this good work. Make Mark ONE of your choices for council.
