Mark was my neighbor for 20+ years. He always responded with a friendly hello or greeting as he so frequently headed out on his frequent running excercise. I began following his career when he was on the Concord City Council & have always been impressed with his sincerity and dedication to his work and sons.

I truly hope he is able to concur this pneumonia and is able to return to his work in Congress.

We need more legislators like him.

I lived in Pacheco and Mark was very helpful with our Mobile Home Park. I now live in New Mexico but know he is very good and takes his position serious. He is in my PRAYERS!

Get Well Soon!

San Pablo Rotary sends our hopes for a speedy recovery from pneumonia. He has been a friend to San Pablo and we appreciate his past leadership
