About Mark

We have some serious issues to address, such as overwhelming residential development, a lack of infrastructure to support that growth, a lack of water, a rise in crime, an underfunded and understaffed police department and the need of a third fire station, just to name a few.

As mayor, I will work to limit growth, fund our police, develop plans for a reliable long-term water supply and get our third fire station built.

My wife, Sue, and I are 30-year residents of Morgan Hill. We raised our three girls in the community we love. I coached my daughters in Morgan Hill Spirit Softball, served on the board of my Homeowner’s Association, participated in creek clean-ups, helped raise thousands of dollars for Morgan Hill schools and other local nonprofit organizations, as well as volunteered for the Morgan Hill Freedom Fest Parade.

Commitment to Morgan Hill

I have decided to run for mayor because I cannot stand by and watch decisions being made and actions being taken by the City Council that are counter to being a servant of the public.

“Mark is a compassionate, understanding, and caring leader. I have seen him lead in some of the most difficult situations where unity, inspiration, and empathy were required. He has the unique ability to listen to opposing views and find middle ground where solutions can be identified. I am encouraged by his moderate and sensible thoughts regarding the issues facing our town. For these reasons, I wholeheartedly endorse Mark for Mayor.”
