Mark has thrown his hat in the ring after a long-term interest in all tiers of politics, seeing this as his opportunity to give back to the Palmerston community after raising his own family here.
Having made Rosebery his home for almost two decades, Mark sees the prevalence of FIFO employment through the military, mining, agriculture and remote services industries. He would like to explore what support is needed and can be provided, for families in these situations to better cope with work life balances and raising a family.
He likes to spend his spare time doing family activities, fishing, learning and teaching new technologies, and anything a bit geeky that can be performed on computers.
With hands-on trade skills and managerial background in manufacturing, servicing and supply chain, Mark is actively involved in local business organisations like Energy Club NT, Territory Proud and regularly attends industry events often promoting to key decision makers the vital economic importance of fostering an active culture of ‘buy local’ first within Palmerston.
Mark believes Palmerston is well placed to capitalise on a multitude of emerging opportunities across a wide range of industry sectors. Palmerston needs to maintain its competent stewardship at council to make the right decisions for all residents to ensure Palmerston continues to improve and always be 'A Place for People'.
