As I start this campaign for school board I would like to share a photo of my two children who are the motivation as to why I am running for School Board. I plan to leave the Irvine Unified School District better than when I found it.

Veterans Cemetery vote

The vote is in. Irvine City Council voted 3/2 to make the location of the new veterans cemetery at the "Strawberry Fields" location. This is historic and I am honored to be a part of it. Now we need to start planning the groundbreaking ceremony

Northwood Memorial Day Ceremony

Never forgotten SFC Callahan and PFC Mason. Two names I was able to find easily of two soldiers I served with who died too young. I wish I had more time at the Memorial to research more friends that were lost. Looking back at my life the past 20 years in the US Army seems surreal. It was good to see how much this memorial helps the community as well as myself. There wasn't a dry eye in the audience even my teenage daughter was moved. She hugged me and told me she was so happy am I alive when she learned about the many sacrifices our US Military and their families. I hope the Irvine City Council can hurry up and get the veterans cemetery approved and start building it. Whatever site is chosen, please just get it done. If you are a veteran or support the veterans and would like to help, contact me for more information. -Mark Newgent www.Mark4Irvine.com #usarmy #marknewgent #captain #memorialday #irvine #orangecounty

Campaign Fundraiser

We had so many good photos from last night I made a collage for everyone to see them at once. I was nervous how the event would turn out but it was great. The magician stole the show with making a signed $20 bill appear inside of an orange, everyone loved it. The comedy magician's name is is name is Matt Price if you would like to book him for your event. Thank you everyone for the support! Special thanks to Jay Mills and Lighthouse Escrow that allowed us to hold this event at their office. -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4schoolboard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

With Irvine City Council Candidate Shiva Farivar

Collaborating today with Irvine City Council Candidate Shiva Farivar. It was great to sit down with a fellow candidate and talk about solutions to real issues. We were going to do Facebook live but my son was sick today so our time was cut short. I will try to get Shiva some air time soon. If any other candidates would like to meet for coffee and/or a Facebook live stream let me know. Spoiler alert, I have been requested to interview a U. S. Congressional candidate. Will let you know the details once we lock it in. -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

Dropping my son off at school this morning for pajama day! He is growing up so fast. Sometimes I want time to slow down.

This evening with Maz Jobrani. Maz is a stand up comedian and Actor. I was thinking of leveraging nearby celebrities to come talk to our kids about bullying. Not a total solution but an idea for something to reduce the rates. Of course, we will need to consult some expert in this field before making any decisions. What are your thoughts? -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4schoolboard #election #winning #Irvine #OrangeCounty #California #neverquit #IUSD #mazjobrani www.Mafk4Irvine.com

Chinese Cultural Center Irvine School Board Candidate forum.

Participating at the Chinese Cultural Center Irvine School Board Candidate forum. This event was really interesting. It turned out to be speed forum. We only had two minutes to open and only 30 seconds to answer each question. The moderator would cut people off if they went a second over their time on their intro or while answering questions it was great! -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

Today with Anthony Kuo in my neighborhood of Woodbury to view the problem with unsafe drivers.

Matthew Ehorn and now Anthony Kuo have come in person. I personally appreciate this as the intersection behind us in the photo is a place my own 6 year old son wants to ride his bike... A place that I have seen way too many close calls. Just before we took this photo we were talking to a group of people when Anthony noticed a car was about to hit a child on a bike. Without hesitation Anthony ran out in front of traffic and stopped the car before it was too late. Luckily the child was fine. Neighbors told us in the past few days there have been two incidents of drivers hitting pedestrians at Woodbury intersections controlled by stop signs. At least one caused major bodily injury to the pedestrian and his child. During Anthony's visit we were able to witness IPD writing tickets and spoke to one officer to get his opinion on the current situation. I am very happy this issue is being addressed by the City of Irvine. I look forward to working with the City Council to make our school drop off zones safer in the morning and for kids when they are walking to school through these dangerous intersections. -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd ##trafficsafety www.Mark4Irvine.com

Campus safety workshop at UC Irvine with US Representative Mimi Walters!

Campus safety workshop at UC Irvine with US Representative Mimi Walters! This was a great event and I am happy to hear about Mimi's bipartisan bill she is working on, to help victims of sexual assault. I am truly proud my elected representative takes school safety seriously. Everyone there took away valuable knowledge. We need more events like these in IUSD high schools to prepare students for college life. #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

oday at the Lake View Senior Center Fund Raising Event

Today at the Lake View Senior Center fund raising event with Irvine City Council Candidates Melissa Fox, Anthony Kuo, Christina Shea (Mary Ann Gaido was also there but I wasn't able to get a photo with her before the event started). ***For the record I do not endorse any candidate. I am neutral on the Irvine City Council race and the Irvine Mayoral Race. I look forward to working with whoever the voters choose.*** Out of over 230,000 people in Irvine only eleven people stepped up to serve on Irvine City Council. I respect all candidates and wish them all the best. #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

I had the chance to meet Mayoral Candidate Gang Chen and his team of volunteers today. ***For the record I do not endorse any candidate. I am neutral on the Irvine City Council race and the Irvine Mayoral Race. I look forward to working with whoever the voters choose.*** I met Mary Ann Gaido today but unfortunately was unable to get a photo with her. I have met Katherine Daigle, was unable to get a photo with her but she did give me a big hug! I have not had the chance yet to meet Don Wagner or David Chey yet who are also running for Irvine Mayor. I will post photos with them as soon as I get to see them again. Out of over 230,000 people in Irvine only five people stepped up to lead as Mayor. I respect all candidates and wish them all the best. #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd www.Mark4Irvine.com

With Irvine City Council candidate Melissa Fox.

With Irvine City Council candidate Melissa Fox. Glad I was finally able to meet Melissa today at the OC LGBT center candidate forum. I have been trying to meet every candidate, and I have been able to get a one on one with almost all of them. The purpose is to gain bipartisan support for real solutions to issues facing Irvine Schools. It is all about relationship building regardless of what party we are in... Especially when it comes to keeping our kids safe. No matter what race, religion, sex, creed, gender or orientation, every kid deserves to feel secure at school! -Mark Newgent #vote4mark #mark4SchoolBoard #election #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california #neverquit #iusd #lgbt www.Mark4Irvine.com

Old Army Photos

Last night my good friend and the bravest interpreter I ever met and who only recently told her husband that she almost got blown up with me. Suggested I put up a photo of me with a dog as she is a dog person. There is one photo in here from a mission that I posed with our explosive sniffing dog. Hope you enjoy.

Coffee with Carolyn Inmon

Endorsement from Carolyn Inmon!!! I can't even begin to list all of Carolyn's qualifications. She began teaching over 40 years ago and has a lengthy list of awards and commendations for her years of service. She is also a published author. Carolyn is well known and respected in Irvine and Orange County. I am honored she is taking the time to help. Carolyn faced off against two of my current opponents in the 2012 general election and missed being elected to the IUSD Board by about 700 votes. She is a great resource for knowledge in the upcoming debates and election. I am very happy to have smart people like her and others behind the scenes helping us with our cause. I thank all of you who support my family and I in this cause. I am so very touched that so many people from Irvine have stepped forward to help and it feels like we will win this!!! -Mark Newgent www.Mark4Irvine.com #election #vote4mark #mark4schoolboard #winning #irvine #orangecounty #california
