PERSONALLY SPEAKING…

It is my honor to offer my service as Sheriff of San Mateo County and share information about my history and career to best inform your vote.  


I was born and raised in San Francisco, where I was one of five children.  My father was a carpenter, and my mother was in customer service at Wilson Sporting Goods. We were raised in the Catholic faith, and I attended Immaculate Conception Elementary School, and Sacred Heart High School in San Francisco.  I have two wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren.    


My law enforcement career started in July of 1975.  I have had the privilege to serve in cities and counties throughout California where my experience in police work and public safety have led to my current position with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy Sheriff. This breadth of experience has prepared me to serve as Sheriff of San Mateo County.


I believe that I am the most qualified candidate to faithfully serve the people of San Mateo County. I am firmly rooted in our local community and consider it a blessing to have continued to hold positions in law enforcement. I thank God every day for giving me all that I need to serve his people. I ask for your vote on June 5, 2018 so that, together we can promote peace and justice for San Mateo County. Thank You. -   Mark
