Meet The Candidate: Mark Lois
Mark and his wife Nicole moved to Chatham Township more than a decade ago and are currently raising their two sons here. Mark is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a small business owner for more than 20 years. His skills in effective communication and business advisory have already delivered outstanding results for Township Residents. In 2021, Mark became Chairman of Chatham Township's Colony Pool Club. Mark has worked tirelessly with other pool volunteers, the Chatham Township Committee, Pool management and our Municipal administration. Under his leadership, the Colony Pool membership almost doubled and revenue almost tripled- revitalizing a membership base that turned down sharply in 2013/2014 and was not vibrant for many years. This success and restoration of financial health was achieved without additional spending, multi-year timelines or requiring "down payment investments" of taxpayer funds. A self-sustaining Colony Pool Club is better for its membership and Township taxpayers alike. Mark wants to bring these efficient, creative solutions to other areas of Chatham Township. We can do more with our tremendous resources through new approaches, better ideas and effective collaboration. Meaningful impact that improves our quality of life doesn't have to take a lifetime. This is Mark's first time running for a public position.
