Candidate Mark Turnquist
For Alameda County Supervisor, District 2
I am Mark Allan Turnquist. I have served you, the citizens of Alameda County, District 2 for the past 23 years as a Deputy Sheriff. Now I am retiring and looking forward to serving you in the County Government as your District 2 Supervisor. With 23 years of work experience, I strongly believe that I have what it takes to make things better for all of us in Our District.
I am a Veteran of The United States Navy. I served from July of 1981 until the end of May of 1985. I received my Honorable Discharge, and I am a Veteran of the Gulf War. I am also a member of the VFW and American Legion.
I was a small business owner; I had Turnquist Excavating in Billings, Montana, and I was there from my Discharge of the Navy in 1985 until April of 1988 when I came back to the East Bay.
I applied for the Alameda County Sheriff's Department at the 1988 Alameda County Fair. Due to the extensive application process, I didn't make it into the Academy until July 17th, 1989.
I am a coach of the Mt. Eden Little League; I was a wrestling coach in Billings Montana the 3 years I was there. We won three State Greco Roman titles and three State Freestyle titles, but most importantly the Kids all wrote and called, and I went back to coach them in the 1988 National tournament which was held in Billings, Montana. We won the National tournament for clubs our size.
My hobbies are Bowling, Golf, Softball, Coaching, and pretty much any outdoor activities. I hope that I can be your choice for County Supervisor District 2. Please vote for me on November 6th, 2012. I won't let you down. I will do my best to make our County the best County in California to live in.
