Mark Woodson was appointed to fill a vacancy on the City Council in February 2012. His current term ends in January 2015.  Mark volunteered for the appointment because he feels that it’s important to participate in our community.

Mark appreciates the wide variety of issues that the Council is asked to address and does his homework and gives each issue full consideration.  Mark has worked with the public and with governmental agencies throughout his career, so he’s familiar with many of the issues that come before the Council.  Mark is used to working with city contracts and budgets and many of the agencies, so he tries to lend that experience to the discussions.  Mark’s overall goal is to provide solid leadership and balanced answers for Flagstaff’s future.

Mark serves as the Council representative to the Northern Arizona Council of Government (NACOG), Vice-chair of the Flagstaff Metropolitan Planning Organization (FMPO), Vice-chair of the Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council (CPWAC), and on the statewide Rural Transportation Advisory Council (RTAC).

Very active in the Flagstaff community, Mark served as a Governor’s appointee to the Arizona State Land Department Urban Land Planning Committee, served on the Flagstaff Board of Adjustments, the Industrial Development Authority, board member of the Northern Arizona Builders Association and a past-president of the Greater Flagstaff Economic Council.  Other service includes having been a Little League President and a Boy Scout leader.

Mark moved to Flagstaff in 1986 with his family, to become the City Engineer and worked for the City until 1993. Upon leaving the City, he started his own business, Woodson Engineering and Surveying which provides planning, surveying and civil engineering services to both public and private clients throughout the southwest.

Mark received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and an MBA from the University of Arizona in Tucson. Mark is a licensed civil engineer and land surveyor.

Mark has been married to Guadalupe (Lupe) Woodson for over 35 years and they've raised 4 children in Flagstaff.
