Why am I running?

“In life there is often a roll call. That’s when you will have to make a decision. To be or to do?” – Col. John Boyd

When I am faced with this question, I choose to do. Which is why I am asking District 8 voters to elect me as their Representative in Alaska’s House of Representatives. My top priority is the economic well being of Alaskans.

I will sponsor a Constitutional Amendment to enshrine the current statutory language relating to the Permanent Fund Dividend in Alaska’s Constitution.

I will not agree to any statewide tax without a vote of the people.

I will sponsor a Constitutional amendment instituting a spending cap based on current incoming revenues to include one half of the earnings reserve.

These measures, along with the responsible development of our human and natural resources ensures Alaska’s prosperity and security for generations to come. I would appreciate your support in this endeavor.  -Mark

About Mark


I was fortunate to have my parents move to Alaska in 1962 when I was just 6 years old.

I am a lifelong Alaskan by choice who volunteered to serve the people of his Community, State, and Country for 20 years in Alaska’s Army National Guard.

After my military retirement in 2003, I continued to volunteer and serve my community in various deliberative bodies.

These are a few:

President, Airport Heights Community Council,

Commissioner, Alaska State Commission on Human Rights,

Commissioner/Chair, Citizens Advisory Commission on Federal Area’s, ( CACFA )

Commissioner, Alaska’s Public Office Commission. ( APOC )

I have faced and passed legislative confirmation several times for appointments by several Governors.

Currently, I enjoy my time with Mary, my Alaskan wife of 28 years, fishing, hunting, maintaining and driving our classic 1967 Pontiac GTO.

My willingness to serve has not diminished. Once again I am stepping up to offer my experience and knowledge as a service to the good people of the State of Alaska.
