Hi, I’m Mark.

Bios can be tricky, particularly when you’re an enthusiastic community volunteer with a wealth of private and public work experience and a weakness for Cheetos. Learn about this secret and also what’s driving me to improve the quality of life for Edmontonians.


A shared platform

I am only as strong as the input I receive from my constituents. Together let’s tackle challenges such as sustainable growth, environmental resiliency, community connectivity, inclusion and innovative municipal service delivery.

A new perspective.

Video Description (0:35)
The montage-style video begins with shots of local businesses and the Calder library and then transitions to scenes of Mark engaging with residents (while taking COVID-related precautions) and enjoying an outing with his family. The video ends with Mark providing the following voiceover: "My name is Mark Davies, and I'm running for Councillor for Ward Anirniq. On October 18th, vote for a new perspective."


Changing times, changing relations.


Anirniq - A new ward for Northwest Edmonton

Located in northwest Edmonton and roughly replacing Ward 2, Anirniq (pronounced as A-nirk-nik) comes from the Inuktun language, meaning "Breath of Life" or spirit. You can learn more about this change, the important history behind the name, and confirm whether you’re a resident of this new riding on the following page.

Land Acknowledgment

I would like to respectfully acknowledge that we are living on Treaty 6 territory; land occupied, travelled, and cared for by ‘Indigenous Peoples’ from time immemorial to the present day.

This land – ᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, Amiskwacîwâskahikan – is a traditional meeting ground, gathering place, and travelling route of the Nêhiyawak (Cree), Anishinaabe (Saulteaux), Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux; whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to enrich our shared heritage.
