Marvin Demers plans run for re-election to Nags Head board

By on September 11, 2017

Marvin Demers has announced his candidacy for a second term to the Nags Head Board of Commissioners.

Here are excerpts from his announcement.

Preceding his tenure as commissioner, he fulfilled a 35-year career practicing engineering and logistics. He and his wife Elizabeth became property owners in Nags Head in 1998, eventually becoming residents in 2007.


Demers’ devotion to the town and increasing interest in civic matters led to appointment to several Nags Head committees. Those included the Beach Nourishment Study committee, the Parks and Recreation Plan committee, and the ad hoc Beach Nourishment easements and petitions committees.

Also during this time, he volunteered for six years as a Tax-Aide consultant providing free personal income tax assistance to the needy and elderly of the Outer Banks through the AARP Tax Aide program. He subsequently was appointed to the Nags Head Planning Board, serving on additional committees and filling the Vice Chair position on the Planning Board.

Demers was then elected to the Nags Head Board of Commissioners in 2013. Key responsibilities have included leading the committee to rewrite the town Stormwater Ordinance, overseeing the Stormwater Management Strategic Area, and providing Board liaison to the committee to update the Parking Ordinance.

He has also served as Board of Commissioners liaison to the Sea Level Rise committee, alternate member of the Albemarle Region Solid Waste Management Authority (on behalf of Dare County), and member of the town Sanitation and Recycling Committee.

Currently, supporting the Town’s high priority FOCUS Nags Head project, Demers is the Board liaison to the FOCUS Technical Committee, which is guiding the rewrite of all the town code applicable to development and redevelopment. The resultant product will be a new Unified Development Ordinance replacing several disjointed sections of the current code.
