We have had the pleasure of knowing Mark Parmelee and his family for the last decade. He is a father of four; the oldest is now completing his sophomore year of college, the two middle kids attend Westfield High, and his youngest is at Roosevelt finishing the sixth grade. We first met Mark as the coach of our daughter’s soccer team.
He created a fun, positive experience for the girls; our daughter still plays in high school today. He is an incredibly generous neighbor, giving his time and know-how without ever hesitating. Many times, he has helped us out on various home projects and didn’t think twice about sharing his portable generator with us during Hurricane Sandy. These are the types of traits that make him a great neighbor, a tremendous friend, and a warm, kind guy who demonstrates that he’s not at all afraid to roll up his sleeves and get to work whenever he is needed.
We believe Mark is an excellent candidate for Ward 2 Town Council. He is not only the father of four very active children but also a prior New York state prosecutor and now an accomplished corporate attorney. His experiences would only bring positive growth for the second ward and the council as a whole. As a resident for over 17 years, Mark truly appreciates the town of Westfield and wants to ensure the town will be a vibrant and strong community, the kind of stable community that will bring his kids back to eventually settle to raise families of their own.
He has a vision of engagement and innovation; he is approachable and collaborative. His intelligence, wit and insight will help him represent the issues here in Ward 2. We are proud to support Mark Parmelee; join us helping him become elected for Ward 2!
