To the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors
Mark Lovelace is uniquely qualified to represent the North Coast Region on the Coastal Commission.
As County Supervisor Mark has established himself as a leader on important statewide issues. He serves on the CSAC Board of Directors and co-chairs CSAC’s Coastal Counties Regional Association and the Medical Marijuana Working Group, as well as being actively involved in CSAC’s State Budget Reform Taskforce and the CSAC/RCRC Williamson Act Working Group. Mark was recently chosen to serve on the West Coast task force for developing study and monitoring protocols for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy projects.
Prior to being elected, Mark worked for many years as an advocate on important local land use, development and environmental issues. He brings more than 10 years experience working with a long list of State and Federal agencies, and understands complex regulatory issues. He has the ability to work through mountains of documents and distill them down to their most significant points. He is objective and thorough in his research and consistently reaches well-thought-out conclusions based upon data.
I encourage you to nominate Mark Lovelace as the North Coast Region representative to the California Coastal Commission.
