Mark Saelens for Newport City Council

Mark Saelens, Candidate
Newport City Council

Occupation:
Lincoln County Solid Waste District Program
Manager and Sustainability Coordinator

Occupational Background:
As a state and county government employee I have worked tirelessly to protect our natural resources while carefully considering the social and economic needs of communities that rely on those resources. I developed unique approaches to solving environmental issues
and I have found effective ways to work with local citizen and business concerns. I was appointed to the Newport City Council in January of 2013. I felt my strongest qualification for my appointment was my environmental science background and a great deal of experience reviewing, writing and implementing both state and federal policy. With EPA’s renewed emphasis to review and overhaul the Clean Water Act and other federal legislation my background and experience continues to be a key advantage for our small city.

Environmental issues are clearly my expertise, but my interest in contributing to and promoting more effective and transparent city management also extends to infrastructure, project management and budget oversight. I am interested in all aspects of providing a
clean, safe, economically viable and enjoyable place to live. I am currently the council liaison or serve on the following committees:
1) Audit, 2) Bike and Pedestrian, 3) Business License Review,
4) City Manager Review Process, 5) Parks and Recreation, 6)
Pool Construction, 7) Wayfinding and 8) the Visual Arts Center.

Educational Background:
Oregon State University, B.S.
Fisheries Science, 1979; Some graduate level coursework;
University of Oregon, Sustainability Leadership Program, Certification, 2008

Prior Governmental Experience:
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Thirty-two years as a Marine Fisheries Biologist
(16 of those years as a federal advisor). I have 39 years of government service in environmental science, management and policymaking. I worked in the field, supervised
projects of 20 people or more, administered biennial budgets of 2.5 million dollars and conducted program design and review. I have served on countless statewide, regional and international committees.
