Marshall Wilson connects people with their communities. His mission as a Bay Area journalist and communications professional is to bridge the gap between residents and their local government. Fostering a two-way dialogue between residents and their representatives leads to better and more-informed decisions.
Marshall grew up in San Mateo County and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara. He then earned a master’s degree in journalism from Stanford University. As a local newspaper reporter, Marshall attended hundreds of public meetings and wrote thousands of articles. He also worked for more than a decade as a reporter and editor at the San Francisco Chronicle.
Since 2006, Marshall has worked in the County Manager’s Office (except for a stint in the private sector) on projects that focus on civic engagement. He currently helps to explain through storytelling, social media and videos the impact of local tax dollars on local needs.
Marshall lives in Redwood City with his wife, Gina, and their 11-year-old daughter, Bella. When not at work, you can usually find Marshall coaching Bella’s softball teams.
