Biography

submitted by the candidate or their team
Mark has been enthusiastically active in our school district for the past 7 years as a member of his children's parent advisory council (PAC), president of the PAC, vice-chair of SD68's Race Relations committee, and on Nanaimo-Ladysmith's district parent advisory council (DPAC).

Mark is honoured to live, work, and play on the traditional and historic lands of the Snuneymuxw, Snaw-Na-Was and Stz’uminus First Nations people. As a single parent of three daughters, it is here that he actively raises his two young children (Tia and Cierra) who attend school here in Nanaimo-Ladysmith Public Schools, while his eldest daughter (Kasumi) is a recent graduate from our district and has since married her soulmate.

Mark has also previously served on the board of directors for Volunteer Nanaimo, the Nanaimo Family Court committee, and Nanaimo's Culture and Heritage Commission. Professionally, Mark is an essential worker with NACL (Nanaimo Association for Community Living) as a front line community support worker.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Quick answer is I was asked one too many times to put my name forward.

Long answer is after speaking with family and friends and having considered the commitments required, it seemed a natural progression from PAC and DPAC. It would be an absolute honour and privilege to continue to serve the community in this exciting and challenging new role while contributing new ideas at the table.
