Mark E. Green on Principles & Values



I am a Christian and seek to honor God in all I do

Q: What in the nature of mankind caused America's Founders to carefully limit powers in the Constitution?

A: Our Founders understood that man is both fallen and has a desire to be free. In order for man to be free, government--comprised of fallen men--must be limited. The Founders wisely mistrusted power in the hands of the few, and not only separated powers between the three branches of government, but also divided power between states and the federal government.

Q: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

A: Though imperfect, I am a Christian by the grace of God and seek to honor Him in all I do. I was raised by two loving parents in rural Mississippi--my dad served in the Air Force in the 50s and became a pastor. My parents taught me the importance of hard work and integrity, and I strive to honor them and God in my family, community, business, and now in public service.

Oppose certification of the 2020 Presidential election.

E. Green voted YEA blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
