A lifetime of
service to the
city we love
Who I am:
I’m Mark Packard.
I am a Carlsbad resident and small business owner. For the past 36 years, I have served my community as Dr. Packard at my family dental practice in the village. My father and 2 uncles started Packard Dental in 1962, and today 2 of my sons now practice there.
In 1990, I was elected to School Board and served 2 terms. For the last 16 years, I have had the honor of serving on the City Council. Carlsbad is currently ranked one of the safest cities in America and and boasts a top tier school system. This is in large part due to teamwork between the city, the business community and the residents of Carlsbad.
I am a husband, father of 6, and grandfather of 21 beautiful grandchildren. For them, and for all families here in District 1, I am working to maintain the quality of life we all enjoy.
why I'm running
Cities around the nation look with envy at Carlsbad’s successes and the quality of life that its citizens enjoy.
I want to continue making Carlsbad the best place to live, work, and raise a family by following the core governance values of fiscal, social, and environmental sustainability.
We will achieve this by addressing the following:
- Making Carlsbad power and water self-sufficient by supporting top-notch infrastructure.
- Improving the response capability of our emergency service professionals.
- Promoting higher education initiatives to give our citizens greater opportunities.
