The son of teachers, Marc grew up in Raleigh and graduated from the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill with degrees in Economics and Chinese. He is the senior claims data analyst in the Business Intelligence unit for a national insurance carrier, while also operating a small rental business with his wife, Cherry.
In September 2018, they welcomed their son, Winston, into the world, while Marc remains an active member in a number of local civic organizations, including the Gaston County Jaycees, the Belmont Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and Queen of the Apostles parish.
A common-sense conservative with a deep understanding of the business and real estate worlds, Marc is ready to be your advocate on the Belmont City Council. Because Belmont is such a great place to live, more and more people want to live here. However, we can't allow development to grow unchecked or we will lose what makes Belmont so special.
Especially with the impending arrival of the light rail, it is imperative that the city council know how and when to push back on development that does not make Belmont a better place. Marc promises to be your representative on the city council who is willing to ask the difficult questions and make people consider whether a given proposal is in the best interests of the city.
With a special emphasis on openness and accessibility, Marc will ensure that all perspectives are heard and that the people of Belmont have the right to determine their own future.
