Mark C Uptegraph – Incumbent
For many years, I have served my community, my faith institution, civic organizations and have served on numerous boards such as the South Florida Community Revitalization Alliance Board, Northwest Community Health Alliance and National Coalition of 100 Black Women. Now, I am excited about the possibility to serve the Town of Haverhill as an elected official. I am ready to activate my gifts and talents to lift all humanity by listening and seeking to understand the needs and concerns of all. I am prepared to address pressing issues in the community such as public safety, bridging the prosperity gap and working to ensure affordable and reliable access to broadband services.
I want to celebrate what is going well and create opportunities to unite the community, decrease the poverty rate and improve the overall quality of life for everyone. I come with a spirit of bold collaboration to work with my fellow council members to ensure policies and initiatives align with closing gaps, creating economic opportunities for all and ensuring our community remains safe for children and families.
