Mark Pancoast

Mark Pancoast was born in Northeast Philadelphia, just a short drive over the bridge to his now forever home.

Pancoast’s parents bought a home on Long Beach Island in Ocean County, where he moved during middle school. When his Dad, who is a candymaker by trade, agreed to help out his friend at Rauhauser’s Candy, he discovered Cape May County, but more specifically, Ocean City. This was the moment he knew he wanted to make Cape May County the place he put down his roots.

Years later, Pancoast met and married his best friend, Abby, and together they had two children, Mia and Joseph. Mia is going into her Sophomore year at Ocean City High School and Joseph is moving up to 7th grade at the Upper Township Middle School. Their family enjoys camping, being outdoors and enjoying the beauty of nature. He believes that preserving open space is important to the health and well being of the families and the business community in Upper Township.

Volunteer work is a big part of Pancoast’s life, especially when it involves the best of both worlds, getting to spend time with his family and giving back to his community. When Joseph started playing football for the Upper Township Indians, Pancoast began working at every level with the Upper Township Football Association and eventually took on the role as Board President. Pancoast is also a 3rd Degree Mason and member of the Elks Lodge.

Both Pancoast and his wife chose a life of protecting and serving when they followed a path to careers in Law Enforcement. Abby is an officer with the Cape May County Sheriff’s Office and Pancoast followed in his Brother-in-Law’s footsteps, a retired Lieutenant with the OCPD, by joining the Ocean City Police Department over twenty years ago. Pancoast was recently promoted to an administrative position which will allow him the flexible work schedule necessary to follow his dream of serving the community in public office.

Pancoast’s Republican roots are deep and strong. He is an America First Constitutional Republican and an unapologetic supporter of the Second Amendment. For him, it’s God, Family and Country. He works with other like minded individuals in the Upper Township Regular Republican Club, and was even elected their Vice President. He continues to recruit new members to support their mission. Pancoast also recently contributed to the re-election of Curtis Corson by volunteering his digital promotions experience to the campaign.

Five years ago, Pancoast wrote-in his name during the Primary election for the vacant Cape May County Republican Committee seat. He succeeded and became the Republican Committeeman for District 12.

Pancoast believes that his services, professional expertise and knowledge of his community are needed now more than ever to bring Upper Township back to what it once was. Providing new and improved services for all our residents while maintaining a stable tax rate is becoming a challenge while there are Democrats controlling the State Government. Pancoast believes that he, along with his fellow running mates, can make the difference.
