Mark Blum

City Council
Title: Councilmember
20220418 Mark Blum


Since 2011, Mark has spent his time on the City Council working towards government transparency, ensuring fiscal responsibility, streamlining needed infrastructure projects, and encouraging economic development.

Now in his seventh term as a Council Member, the City of Jeffersontown has made major strides in all of these areas. The council meetings are live-streamed, recorded, and stored for public viewing. The city has passed fiscally responsible balanced budgets with a focus on having a strong police department and efficient public works, and doing it without raising taxes. The city’s infrastructure has improved with additional parking options along Watterson Trail, neighborhood sidewalks, renovations to Veterans Memorial Park, the upcoming amphitheater and police department. Mark strives to create a business-friendly environment through the creation of the J.O.B.S. program, encouraging common sense re-zoning, and continuing the city’s partnership with the Jeffersontown Chamber. All of these efforts have played a role to help stimulate the growth you see today.

On a personal note, Mark enjoys cooking each day for his family, which includes his wife, Kristen, their children, Audrey, Luke, & Jack, and their pug Lucy.
