InfoMark Udall was first sworn in as a member of Congress on January 6, 1999, representing Colorado?s second congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives. The second district, located north of Denver, includes all of Boulder, Gilpin, and Clear Creek counties and parts of both Jefferson and Adams counties.

A member of the House Resources Committee, Udall sits on the Subcommittee on National Parks, Recreation and Public Lands and the Subcommittee on Forests and Forests Health. Udall is also a member of the House Science Committee, and serves on the Subcommittee on Environment, Technology and Standards, the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics, and the Subcommittee on Energy. In addition, Udall has been given the opportunity to sit on a third committee, the House Small Business Committee.

Udall?s colleagues have elected him to serve as Democratic Deputy Regional Whip for the western United States and as the Democratic freshman class vice president in 2000. He is also a lead co-chair of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus.

Mark made his entrance into politics in 1997 as a representative in the Colorado State House. During his tenure in public service, Mark has championed environmental, education and health care issues. His operating style has been to avoid burning bridges with people, including those with whom he has philosophical differences. "You can disagree without being disagreeable," says Udall. In describing Udall?s work, the Denver Post called him "a tireless worker" and said he has "been effective largely because he puts the public?s business ahead of partisan concern." The Rocky Mountain News said Udall has "a willingness to steer a bipartisan course on numerous issues."

Udall is no stranger to the world of public service. His father, Morris "Mo" Udall, served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 30 years and ran for the Democratic nomination for President in 1976. His uncle, Stewart, is widely revered for his accomplishments while serving as Secretary of the Interior under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.

Mark was born on July 18, 1950, in Tucson, Arizona, and has spent his entire adult life in Colorado. He graduated from Williams College in 1972 with a bachelor?s degree in American Civilization. Mark developed a long and successful career with the Colorado Outward Bound School, as a course director and educator from 1975-85 and as the organization?s Executive Director from 1985-95. Taking the challenges of his career into his own life, Mark is an avid mountain climber and has climbed or attempted some of the world?s most challenging peaks, including Mt. Everest.

He and his wife, prominent attorney and conservationist Maggie Fox, have two children: a son Jed and a daughter Tess. They live in Boulder County.
