Mark’s ‘non-political’ life includes being the Principal Broker for the Shepherd
Real Estate Group, a local, independent real estate brokerage which he
founded in 2018. His business focuses primarily on military relocation, both to
and from Utah.
Mark served nearly 9 years on the Clearfield Planning Commission before
being elected to the City Council in 2007. After 6 years on the Council, Mark
was elected as Clearfield City’s Mayor in 2013 and is now serving his 3rd term as Mayor. Mark has served as an Honorary Commander for the 388th MXG for three years

He is a Board Member for the Utah League of Cities and Towns and is running for Davis County Commission.
Mark has been married to his wife Tammie for the past 31 years. They are the
parents of seven children and three grandchildren. In his “spare” time, Mark
will likely be found at a Real Salt Lake soccer game, searching for his ball at
one of the local golf courses or at the gun range practicing his aim. Whichever
activity that day might bring, you will almost always find one of his children
by his side.
