Harold Markey has the skills, knowledge and experience to lead Martin County in the right direction.

He joined Martin County as a plumber in 1990 and worked his way up through the ranks, holding various positions in the General Services Department, including Maintenance Supervisor, Maintenance Coordinator, Building Maintenance Superintendent, General Services Team Leader, General Services Manager and finally, General Services Director.  After 27 years as an award-winning employee with Martin County, he retired in October of 2017.  During a County Commission meeting, he was recognized by every current Martin County Commissioner for his work with the County and especially for saving the County and the taxpayers millions of dollars.

​They praised him for the work he had done during his career, calling him honest, hard-working, a man with integrity, someone who accepted challenges and came up with innovative ideas and solutions and someone who thought long and hard before spending your tax dollars.

His experience in the General Services Department has given him unique insight that will serve the taxpayers well if elected.  He is intimately familiar with the County budget, and the spending habits of our Commission.  The County Commission has spent millions on lawsuits while our first responders, County infrastructure and facilities have gone on the back burner for far too long; a very costly mistake for the taxpayers.  Harold managed his department with complete transparency; Harold believes the public deserves to know what’s going on, and should not be worried about, or in the dark as to how decisions are made that affect the residents’ lives.  He has proven his fiscal responsibility with the taxpayers hard earned dollars, managing millions of dollars throughout his career.

Having been professionally trained in the areas of managing multiple projects, meeting deadlines and achieving objectives, communicating, maintaining strong ethics, teamwork and exceptional customer service, Harold can help build consensus among local decision makers and County employees.

Harold has invested his personal time in the community having volunteered for years as a Coach for Varsity Football and Pop Warner Football. He was the County Team Leader for American Heart Walk for two years and was named the Martin County Historic Preservation Board Preservationist of the Year in 2016.  In 2017, the Disability Assistance, Inc. organization issued a proclamation thanking him for the outstanding work he did in making Martin County the most ADA accessible County in the State.

He is married to Nicole and is a father and grandfather.

Harold has a very clear goal in mind.  “If elected, I will work hard every day to bring trust back to the people of Martin County.”
