More About Mark

As a resident of Theodore, Mark understands his community and the local issues.


Raising his children locally, Mark has an added incentive to ensure this community is the best place to live and raise a family. 


Mark is a proud member and supporter of many community organisations such as Lions, Rotary, local Men's Shed's and CWA, Helensvale RSL, Neighbourhood Watch and numerous sporting organisations. When Parliament is not sitting Mark attends as many school P&C meeting as possible to stay in touch with the needs of our students and their schools.

Prior to his election, as a local Mortgage Broker, Mark was frustrated with the ongoing neglect and misrepresentation of the community at the hands of Labor. 

Organised crime was at all-time highs, schools were dilapidated, infrastructure was inadequate and the economy was buckling under mismanagement pressures.
