Mark Townsend


I provide care and support for adults with learning disabilities, I am married with 2 young boys and also have 2 adult children & 3 grandchildren.

I had a difficult childhood dragged through the care system, then as a young adult spent 2 short spells in prison. I was a devout atheist who not only denied a creator, but also felt that even if I were wrong, I would not want anything to do with a god who allows such evil in the world and then expects us to worship him.

Then about 15 years ago, after a very unexpected encounter with the LORD, I turned to Christ, and my life has not been the same since.

Initially my faith cost me everything, family, home and everything I valued, but GOD is faithful to his word and today I am very happily married and my life has been transformed beyond recognition, I have a sense of peace and joy I never knew.

As a young man I pressured a woman into having an abortion, simply to hide my infidelity, but now with a clearer understanding of what an abortion is, and with a clear understanding of how valuable every life is, I want to fight for every baby's right to life. That is why I'm standing as an independent candidate for Vote Life.
