Let me begin by saying what I hope all of you already know about me:   I love this city!  It has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and it is why I have devoted the better half of my adult life to public service here in Medford.

We are poised on the threshold of a new era, about to take a new and exciting step forward, front and center.

We can make our city the pride of its citizens, the envy of its neighbors, and a leave a legacy of working together for generations to come.

Together, we can seize this opportunity to transform Medford from the status quo and commit to building it into the great, peerless city it deserves to be; a city on the cutting edge.

We can do it!

What are your ideas?  Where do you plan to take us?  What can we expect from Michael Marks?  

let me give you a broad overview of what you can expect from me over the next two years in both style and substance.

My agenda as your representative will be driven by you; your needs and expectations.  It has been and will continue to be a collaborative effort and as your voice on the city council, I will continue to be both transparent and accessible.

My message to the neighborhoods is this: I am your voice. I listen, advocate and represent you.  I will yield to no one in my support of every citizen in the City of Medford.

During the past 14 years, as a member of the Medford City Council, I have dedicated myself to “doing the people’s business”, and, to this end, I’ve worked tirelessly to be worthy of your trust. Over that time, I’ve become conversant in a broad and expansive range of issues, and I would like to think that I’ve learned what makes Medford’s heartbeat.

And now that you know who I am, and where I plan to journey with you over the next couple of years, let me finish with these words:

I am and, always have been, motivated by a sense of duty – a summons to serve.  

What can I do for my community?

How can I improve the lives of my fellow citizens, the people of Medford?

What can I do for those who feel left out or cannot speak for themselves- the most vulnerable among us?

And yes, I have an obligation to the people of Medford to get it right.

I have a vision for Medford, but I need you – all of you- together by my side to make that vision a reality.
