Councilmember Marty Novak was elected to serve District II on April 3, 2018.
A St. Joseph native, Marty grew up in the South Side, a proud Benton High School Cardinal. He attended Missouri Western State University when the trees on campus were just saplings.
Marty retired in 2018 from the News-Press and Gazette Company after 43 years of service. Through the years, Marty has combined his extensive background in business and management with service to our community. He has participated in a vast number of civic, business, professional and religious organizations and served our city on a number of community boards.
Marty and his wife Rosemary are proud of St. Joseph and believe in our city's future. They have lived in District II for 35 years and are members of St. Francis Xavier Parish.
Marty is excited to help bring fresh representation and new ideas to the St. Joseph City Council. He looks forward to continuing meeting with St. Joseph citizens and groups. Marty believes that working together with constituents and addressing their concerns, we CAN do better!
Councilmember Novak is the City Council CDBG representative.
