Mark Koppang Re-Election 2019
Even before his election to City Council, Mark Koppang was focused on making a difference. As a member of the Council, Mark’s commitment to service and creating solutions that work for all members of the community has only grown.
As a supporter and former member of the Federal Way Chamber of Commerce, Mark has had heard firsthand the concerns and challenges our local businesses face. Mark has been a strong supporter of public safety, promoting innovation such as Safe Cities, leading the charge on formulation of the Violence Prevention Coalition Steering Committee as well as implementation of their recommendations, and supporting our Nationally Accredited Police Department. As Chair of the Land Use and Transportation Committee Mark worked to insure funding remained in place for our roads, the best in Washington, and strategic investment and planning for our future downtown is taking place.
As a member of the Federal Way Rotary, who’s motto is “Service Above Self”, he has supported the BAG program, which provides food for the weekend for students in need, both monetarily and by volunteering. Mark also continues to serve on the Board of the Federal Way Boy’s and Girl’s Club, an organization he grew up in that effectively engages and mentors the youth of Federal Way, without discrimination.
Mark has been a part of our Community since 1976, knows our history, and will continue to serve, promoting Federal Way solutions that protect the interests of all by creating partnerships with solutions providers and engaged community members.
Making the leap from being engaged in public causes to running for office was a big step and one most never consider. This is certainly understandable, as running for public office is demanding and sometimes thankless. Mark is honored to serve the citizens of Federal Way as a member of the City Council and will continue to work to earn your trust and your vote.
We live in a world that is constantly changing. Some choose to embrace the change, while other resist it. Regardless, change is always going to be a part of our lives, so understanding who we are and what we value is essential. Being an active part of the change is something all of us can do regardless of our race, social status, or age. Mark’s hope is that all of us, no matter how we choose to serve, can continue to make a difference in Federal Way and be part of creating the solutions our city needs.
