Mark has always been an advocate and an ally for the LGBTQIA+ community on Staten Island, in NY and everywhere. In his real estate business, LGBTQIA+ individuals have made up a significant portion of the people contracted to help in his work. This campaign currently employs members of the LGBTQIA+ community and when Mark is in Borough Hall, he plans to have the most inclusive and diverse staff Staten Island Borough Hall has ever seen.
In 2020, Mark was proud to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community in condemning the exclusion of the LGBTQ community from the annual Staten Island St. Patrick’s Day parade. He wrote a letter to the editor published in the Staten Island Advance voicing these concerns. When elected, Mark will continue to fight for the LGBTQIA+ community to ensure that they feel safe, heard, and that their rights are protected both here in Staten Island and citywide.
