Mark comes from humble beginnings. He grew up in Bradford County in a small town called Ridgebury.
After his mother passed away, Mark was raised by his father, a hard-working single parent. Like millions of parents, his father put in long hours as an auto-mechanic every day to make sure he provided for his family. They had a lot of help from family, friends, and the government.
Mark is a proud product of public education. Looking back, Mark is not ashamed he had great teachers that gave him and his family a little extra help or that he and his sisters qualified for the lunch program.
In 2008, at age 29, Mark Smith became the youngest Chairman of the Bradford County Board of Commissioners in history – and only the second Democrat to ever hold that position.
