Philip Mark is one of two candidates currently running for City Council Position No. 1. His appointed term will conclude when election results are certified in November of 2021, at which point he may continue to serve on Council depending on the outcome of the election.

He is married with two daughters, one son, and six grandchildren.
"I'm truly honored and excited to be a member of this Council," said Mark about his successful appointment. "I love our small city. I have been a proud booster of Woodinville for over two decades, and I have been looking for the right forum to give something back to this community. We have several significant projects in the works, with more to come, fulfilling the path that Council has been heading down for many years. I look forward to doing my part to fulfill the vision of Woodinville's Comprehensive Plan and work closely with our various commissions to further enhance the desirability of our community."
