Mark A. Roberts
Mark Roberts Congressional Candidate Texas District 2
Mark grew up in a small town in Southeastern Michigan. As a child, he attended both Catholic and public schools, graduating from a public high school in 1976. After graduation, he attended Michigan State University. At MSU, Mark majored in Telecommunications and History. He earned his degree from MSU in 1981.
After school, Mark accepted a job in Chicago with the Social Security Administration. Mark left the job in the late 1980′s to return to school. He enrolled in the MAT program at Wayne State University. In 1995, Mark accepted a teaching position with a public school in the Rio Grande Valley, and was Texas bound.
In 1997, Mark moved to the Houston area, and he has been here ever since. Mark has always been interested in politics. For years, he watched the political process in America with growing frustration. Finally, he decided to quit complaining about the problem, to become a candidate, and try to create a solution.
That solution will not come easy. The problems we face today have been years in the making and are self inflicted, the results of political decisions made in this country over the last thirty years. We chose to go from a nation that produces things to a nation that finances things. As a result of those decisions, our corporations have been exporting jobs and productive capacity for three decades. If we want to rebuild and restore our nation, that practice has to end. We need to refocus our attention on building and preserving the well-being of our communities.
We can no longer afford to create profits for corporations, at the expense of the people.
