Meet Mark

 

Mark grew up poor in Greensboro, North Carolina as the ninth of ten children in a green shingled house with a red roof. His father was an abusive alcoholic. Their house had no heat, no AC, and didn’t even have a shower for them to wash.

As a child, Mark ended up in the foster care system. He and two of his brothers went to the same home where they were fortunate to end up with a caring family. Some of his siblings were not so lucky, and ended up in abusive situations. Mark and his siblings were able to move back in with their mother eventually, who was a devout woman of faith, and he credits his mother as being the reason he is the man he is today. She taught him about the Bible, and always told her children they could be whatever they put their minds to.

Towards the end of high school, Mark joined the Army reserves where he served as a medical specialist for three years. After high school he went to NC A&T and while there, worked at a factory. Mark planned on staying at this factory and working his way up, and possibly even retiring with the company, but it wasn’t to be.

While he was working there, NAFTA was implemented, and his job like so many others had wages cut. They were cut so badly in fact, he ended up leaving. After that, he worked at a restaurant as a shift worker before becoming the general manager there, and served in that role for five years. During that time, his wife Yolonda started a day care center which grew rapidly, requiring them to acquire a new building.

Eventually, Mark left his job to work at the center where he taught children and cared for them. After eight years, they decided to sell the business, and Mark went back to work at a furniture factory. While there he attended UNCG, studying history. However, this factory job would also cease to exist when the owners decided to move the plant to Mexico, leaving Mark and dozens of others without jobs. He eventually got a new job at a different furniture factory, and had plans to pursue a full- time teaching career, getting his masters and then PHD so that he could become a professor, but it was not to be.

On April 3, 2018, Mark’s life changed when he stood up against the Greensboro City Council in a speech which has been seen over 150,000,000 times. Since that speech, he has served on the NRA National Outreach Board, has appeared on Fox and Friends, has been interviewed by Lara Trump, and traveled the state and nation spreading the conservative message.

Mark resides in Greensboro and is happily married to his wife Yolonda, and has two kids, and a grandchild.

    Met Mark today in Cape Carteret. Very impressed with this courageous Conservative Republican. He spoke for 45 minutes with no notes. His beliefs and values align with mine. He’s been to 60 counties with 40 more to go. If he’s coming to a location near you, I’d encourage you to go. He has my support and vote.

    I actually saw him speak and was very impressed with what he had to say. We need more people like him because the democrats certainly don’t believe in our Constitution. They are trying to destroy everything our forefathers created.

    Mark is a true Patriot. A man full of faith and conviction. I was lucky enough to meet Mark in Weaverville at Twisted Laurel last week, and am proud to support him. We need more honest representation and less politics.

    Wow! What an awesome candidate. My husband and met Mark in Morganton and Taylorsville today and what a man with a message. Genuine, articulate and accurate in everything he said and serious issues he’s running to take on. Grab your friend, family or neighbor and find his event place. Take some dollars and donate.! NC Needs him in Raleigh with Dan Forest! God Bless America and N.C.!

    This is probably the 10th time I have seen this video but what he says hit the truth nail! Men like him should be running our country not killary or so full of herself Pelosi she could foat away in her own gas bubble. Her and Chuck remind mind me of Chucky and his bride lol it’s crazy months and months of B’s when we could be solving high medical cost and healthcare . I hope you win Mike we need more honest men and woman like you.

    Mark Robinson is a man on a mission and it’s good for the state of North Carolina and for America. His speeches are unscripted and from the heart. He loves his country and is a warrior for our sacred rights gifted from God. I am so proud to support his candidacy for Lt Gov of North Carolina.

    I don’t live in NC, but this Patriot speaks for millions of Americans. I want to do all I can to help. Please let me know how. Also, to Mark, and I honestly hope you see this…YOU are a rising star, please don’t do anything to jeopardize that…your voice is powerful, your passion unsurpassed. America needs you, and I can envision great things for you in years ahead. Use your voice, compassion, and love for our country to become a star nationally. I truly hope you learn, grow, inspire millions, and one of these days become a great American President as you have a God given talent and voice.

    Sincerely,
    J Nolan

    Mark, I have watched the video of your speech on gun control at your city council meeting many times. No one could have bern more eloquent. I just shared it with our Ohio state rep, a Democrat, who just held a meeting regarding gun control in our small town public library. He did a great job of fear-mongering…even had armed security there that he claims was recommended by the “State of Ohio”. Yeah, not buying that either. We have a monster job on our hands, but I just want to say thank you for fighting the good fight. Bless you & yours..

    I had the pleasure to listen to Mark give a speech yesterday in Winston-Salem at the Ladies for Trump meeting at South Fork Community Center. Everyone needs to listen to Mark speak, he is someone that I believe would represent the people when elected. He is a true patriot and conservative and I am honored to support him.
