Re-Elect Mark Fagin

Beaverton City Council

Experienced Leadership for Beaverton

Meet Mark

 

Hi, I’m Mark Fagin! I’m a husband, father, small business owner, and current Beaverton City Councilor. I’ve called Beaverton home for 25 years, raised my family here, and headquartered my business here. I love this city and am passionate about continuing to make it the best city in the country. 

 

I began my involvement with the City of Beaverton as the first chair of the Visioning Advisory Committee back in 2009. Being the chairperson on the committee that worked directly with Beaverton residents and staff to create a community vision for our city was enlightening.  The award-winning Community Vision, which I have worked since then to champion, was a very rewarding experience. I went on to serve on the Planning Commission and the Civic Plan Steering Committee and was heavily involved in the Urban Redevelopment Plan.  

 

In addition to my work on the City Council, Budget Committee, Urban Redevelopment Agency Board and Audit Committee, I represent Beaverton as Chair of the Regional Water Providers Consortium and an alternate to the Joint Water Commission.

 

I am committed to being a responsible and available Councilor. I believe my role is to listen, to be disciplined, to stay focused, and to follow through. 

 

I have loved being your City Councilor since 2013 and I hope to earn your support this year! 

 

Find more information below on some of my priorities. And please contact me with any questions!

Priorities for 2020 & Beyond

 

Our economy is better than it was four years ago.  As a councilor, I have worked hard to improve our business environment.  I’ve pushed for incentives for local businesses to expand in Beaverton with the goal of increasing jobs.  I believe the city must prioritize actively creating and maintaining jobs within our city.

 

The visible landscape of Beaverton’s downtown is changing for the better.  During my time on the Council, we approved moving City Hall.  We worked with downtown business and property owners to start the award-winning Beaverton Downtown Association.  We invested in storefront improvement expansion programs.  We have also helped encourage the first downtown housing investments in over a decade that have resulted in nearly 300 new homes with another 300 being completed this year.

Continue Developing our Local Economy

Solving transportation problems is front and center on my agenda.  Beaverton residents say time and again that traffic is Beaverton’s number one issue.  There is no “magic solution” to all our transportation challenges, so we need well-rounded approaches.

 

I’ve studied our transportation issues and will continue advocating for our City.  I will fight for transportation dollars and attention to Beaverton’s needs, including road improvements, better intersection designs, smart signal systems, completed bike and safe pedestrian routes.  Moving cars, bikes and people through our city safely and efficiently is my goal.

Common Sense Solutions for Transportation

Great things are happening in Beaverton and our future looks bright.  We have great neighborhoods, businesses, schools and parks, and a fantastic reputation for public safety, livability, and sustainability.  As a city leader, I know my job is to listen to our residents and invest in the things that build on our strengths and address our weaknesses.

Responsibly Fulfill the Community Vision
