Representative Mark Meek is a small business owner who served in the United States Air Force, coached high school football, and has spent years as a dedicated volunteer in his community. In 2016, Mark was elected by the people of House District 40 – which includes Oregon City, Gladstone and unincorporated Clackamas County – to represent them in the Oregon House of Representatives. He was re-elected in 2018 and 2020.
As a legislator, Mark has been a champion for revitalizing Oregon City’s waterfront and the re-opening of the Willamette Falls Locks. In 2021, Mark successfully led passage of legislation establishing the Willamette Falls Locks Authority.
Mark’s struggles growing up shaped him – but they didn’t define him. Through the love and support of his teachers and community, Mark was able to become the first in his family to graduate high school before going on to serve in the military, earn a college degree and eventually start a successful small business.
Mark and his wife Cindy live in Gladstone and have been married for over 35 years. They have two grown sons and are proud grandparents to Owen and Maddy.
