Thank You Medford for your vote of confidence.

Welcome ! 

image Hi my name is Michael Marks and I'm a candidate for re-election to the Medford City Council. I am a life long resident and homeowner. My wife Lisa and I reside at 37 Wellington Rd with our three children Giana, Olivia and Evan. As a member of the city council I know first hand that our neighborhoods are the life line of our community. That is why I stood alongside neighbors protesting the encroachment of industry upon their residential neighborhoods. I insisted upon the installation of thermoplastic crosswalks and introduced numerous traffic calming approaches to address speeding and pedestrian safety in our community.

  • Offering the resolve which limited the number of months odd/even winter parking is in effect to alleviate parking congestion.

  • I led the charge to lower the age of eligibility for a senior property tax exemption from age 70 to 65 assisting those seniors who are on fixed incomes to stay in their homes. .

  • I have actively supported green initiatives such as the harvesting of rain runoff water for use in lawn irrigation and fire fighting and the use of wind to power our schools.
     

  •  I authored the resolve which created a first of its kind "No Knock" ordinance which regulates door to door solicitors.

  • During tough fiscal times I sought creative revenue enhancing ideas such as the "in lieu of tax payment" which generated over 1 million dollars of much needed additional revenue used to enhance our schools and public safety.
    .

  •  I am actively pursuing the creation of a parking enforcement department which will address business and neighborhood concerns of city wide parking enforcement..
