"Marc Has the Right 'Community Building Leadership Skills and Experience' for Tigard.
He has an innate ability to positively influence city goals that bring community together. His inclusive community engagement and outreach leadership style is needed now more than ever."
Marland Henderson, Former Tigard Councilor
"I knew Marc when I was the planning commission chair; and served with him for two years on city council. As I've observed multiple times and is obvious to anyone who knows him, he cares deeply about the city he grew up in and is very passionate about the place he calls home. I have no doubt, if Marc is elected back to council, he'll continue to do the peoples work with their best interests at heart."
Tom Anderson, Tigard City Councilor
“I had the pleasure of working with Marc on the Tigard PRAB for 4 > years. Marc was the council liaison to the PRAB from 2011-2015 and he was knowledgeable, collaborative and passionate about the need and benefits for Recreation AND Parks in Tigard. It's not coincidental that near the end of Marc's tenure as the Council PRAB liaison, we hired a Recreation Coordinator - the 1st time we've had one in 5+ years.”
“Marc not only shared his knowledge and passion for Tigard Parks and Rec during his tenure with PRAB, but he inspired our PRAB members to do the same. Marc's prior experience as a Tigard City Councilman will also be beneficial - he'll be able to navigate the waters of city government. He'll build on his existing knowledge of key city issues: Pandemic management, Transportation, traffic management and crime. He'll then leverage his experience to build collaborative solutions to Tigard's issues and opportunities."
Please join me in voting for Marc Woodard for Tigard City Council - he genuinely cares about our City, our people and our Parks and Rec services.”
Dave Brown, 25 yr Tigard resident, PRAB member 2011 thru 2019 and PRAB chair 2015-2016
"Marc has been a close neighbor and active citizen, caring passionately about everything in the City of Tigard. In his former experience on City Council, he was honest in his opinions on all City policy decisions, always putting citizens first. He actively worked with all age groups from Youth in high school, to our honored Senior Citizens, carefully listening to each viewpoint and making the effort to put himself in their shoes. His leadership style, business background and ability to communicate make him a genuine candidate who will represent Tigard Citizens with dignity and honor."
Elise Shearer, Urban Renewal Committee
""I first met Marc while serving as the YMCA director in Sherwood. One thing is for sure, he cares greatly about the place he calls home. Tigard needs an experienced and trustworthy leader who is honest, inspires, motivates and listens and treats everyone fairly. Marc has those qualities. Without a doubt, Marc has the right leadership qualities for city council.""
Renee E. Brouse, Executive Director Good Neighbor Center
"I support Marc Woodard for Tigard City Council. I have known Marc for several years. I have had the opportunity to work closely with him for the past 5 years on The Tigard Recreation Committee and have seen and felt his passion, dedication and commitment to improving the quality of life for all Tigard citizens. Marc’s outgoing and caring personality to address the issues facing our community, is what Tigard needs.
Marc has the ability to bring the community together. As a successful community organizer, this makes him the right person to serve on City Council."
Connie Ramaekers, Tigard Turns the Tide Director
I've had the pleasure of knowing Marc for over 40 years and have seen the kind of person he is. His loyalty, integrity and honesty towards others and the city of Tigard, a place he has lived most of his life.
Marc and I got reacquainted several years back through our love and quality of life through Parks and Recreation when we ran into each other at an annual Oregon Recreation & Parks Association conference.
He is a strong supporter for the citizens, small business, law enforcement and assurance that the council does it checks and balances on community issues and concerns.
Marc has the right leadership qualities to best represent the citizens of Tigard.
