He will make an excellent elected leader for the City of Mesa.

When it comes to taking action to find a solution, you will find no one more dedicated to solving problems than Mark Freeman. Mark’s work ethic and his ability to reason will make him an invaluable public servant to Mesa’s residents and business community. I have full confidence in his solid common sense, his ability to lead and listen and his perseverance to navigate through any issue.
“I want to avoid clichés when talking about Mark Freeman, because common sayings seem trite. ‘He’s a salt of the earth’ kind of man whose ‘handshake is as good as his word.’ But, those things, while heard a lot, are quite uncommon to find in people these days. Not Mark Freeman.
“I admire the way Mark honors his family and how he treats his farm with respect. He’s not above jumping in to fix a busted tire or rising before dawn to ensure the soil is ready for planting. Mark has the spirit of optimism – which a farmer needs – while also remaining realistic about issues and challenges facing our community. I appreciate his friendship and his wisdom – we all can learn a great deal from a man like Mark. That’s one reason among many why I am supporting him for Mesa City Council.”
Former Mayor of Mesa, Wayne Pomeroy, and Michel Pomeroy Fluhr
