Born in Roswell, New Mexico, Marc Hader moved to Oklahoma in 1977 as his father was called to Pastor Shartel Church of God, in Oklahoma City. Marc has always shared his father’s conviction to serve. As such, he has continued a life of service after being sworn into office on January 2nd, 2015.
Having worked in municipal government (City of El Reno), county government (Oklahoma County), and state government (Oklahoma Department of Transportation), as well as private sector civil engineering, road and bridge construction and planning and zoning; Marc has a broad background in the various areas in which a County Commissioner serves their constituents.

Marc has also served on numerous boards, including the Oklahoma County Juvenile Justice Advisory Board, the House of Healing, Operation Lifesaver, and multiple homeowners associations.
