Mark Reed, candidate for Madera County Supervisor District 5, is an Oakhurst resident who has "family, friends and business ties" that go back five decades in Madera County. His family includes farmers and ranchers who inspired him to start a company from his own ranch at age 31 to entertain and educate children about farm animals.
He began his career in business management when he bought his first company at age 26. Two years later, he opened a retail plumbing and pool supply store which he sold to start his entertainment and educational company.
Reed comes from a military family of eleven where he said his ''strong sense of responsibility" came from his dad and "giving back to the community" came from his mother.
He and his wife, Nina, whom he lovingly introduces as his "childhood sweetheart", have three adult children and 11 grandchildren. The couple has been married 44 years.
