Candidate: Baun Mark, city council

Baun Mark is vying for a seat on Grand Forks city council

Baun Mark

Grand Forks has been my home for 60 years. I am happily married for almost 19 years. I have six children, ages from six to 46 years old. My wife, Mei-Lan and I are owners of the Grand Forks Castle Centre.

I have started and operated several success local businesses over the last 50 years. I’ve decided to run for city council because I felt I owe a lot of my business success to Grand Forks. This city has been very good to me and my family, and now I would like to give back to my city.  I want to offer my business skills and experience, and to have a part in helping direct our city in a positive direction of.

My extensive business background will be an asset in city council. I am experienced with all facets of running businesses and successful

business management.

I feel that the City of Grand Forks should be run as a business, by persons with business management experiences, after all, it is a corporation.

City council is like the board of directors of a corporation. Elected members of the board are

given a great level of responsibility and trust, responsibility to ensure that the shareholders get good value for their hard earned dollars, responsibility to be good stewards of the shareholders’ assets. They must never forget that they are answerable to the taxpayers, you, the shareholders.

When you elect me to council, I would be honoured and privileged for your trust. I will accept my responsibility earnestly and gratefully; I will work diligently, with integrity and honesty, for you, the shareholders of the corporation. I will work for the best interest of the City of Grand Forks, your city, my city, and the city of our children.

I humbly ask for your vote on Nov. 15.
