I am recommending Mark James for the Marysville City Council. Mark is an integral part of the Marysville business community, a devoted husband and father, a military veteran, and an active member of his local church.

Anyone who knows Mark knows that he has spent his life serving others and that he has a passion to better his community. All these things are enough to make Mark an excellent choice for city council, but what sets him apart from other candidates is his unique vision for Marysville as a city with a true identity.

Mark isn’t interested in the status quo or business as usual. Like so many of us, he wants to see Marysville develop into a city that can really compete with surrounding area for economy-boosting new businesses, great shopping and restaurants, thriving schools, and beautiful public spaces and parks.

Mark’s fresh ideas, extensive business experience, and his pragmatic approach to local politics are exactly what we need to get the job done. If you’re like me and feel it’s time for a change, please vote for Mark James!

New/fresh perspectives are needed to move Marysville forward.

Please join me in voting for Mark James for Marysville City Council, Position 2. Mark and Renae James have raised their family and started their business in Marysville, a testament to where they call home.

Mark has worked and volunteered for many organizations throughout his life in Marysville and has served our country and community as a Veteran. Mark is forward thinking, level headed and has Marysville’s best interest at heart. He will be a much valued asset to our Marysville City Council.

As a resident of Marysville myself, I know we need good representation on our council for the many issues facing our city. Mark is the perfect candidate for us.
