Hearing the call to serve as a councilperson, Marcus knew it was time to dedicate himself to a higher cause and become a public servant. Unlike other decisions in his past, Marcus describes it as a calling to do what was right.
“I don’t volunteer expecting any special recognition or as a platform to some other position, I do it because I feel if I have something to offer for the city I love, enhance the quality of life, then if I am wanted, I will be there, roll-up my sleeves and help get the work done.”
Together with his family, the decision was made to take this journey one more time. Marcus unsuccessfully ran in 2016 for a council seat and when asked, why are you putting yourself through this again he said
“I am a fighter for what I believe in! I believe in our city and still have a lot to offer to build on its diverse, cultural and economic vitality.”
