Kent Marmon is a Native Caldwellite
Kent Marmon is no stranger to Caldwellites. He is part of the second generation of Marmons born and raised in Caldwell. His grandfather, Nathaniel, homesteaded just outside Caldwell in the Pleasant Ridge area in 1905, later moving into Cadwell after retirement. Kent's grandmother's family (the Darlings) arrived by wagon as early pioneers to the area, and his great grandfather was involved in the creation of the Deer Flat Free Methodist Church and was its first pastor, over 100 years ago.
Kent's father, Loren, was born in Caldwell, and graduated from both Caldwell High School and the College of Idaho.
All three of Kent and Sylvia Marmon's children were born in Caldwell, and now, two of their kids and their children live in Caldwell; and one, along with her family, reside in nearby Nampa.
Together, that's six generations of the Marmon family who have made Caldwell their home.
This site was created by Kent Marmon, candidate for Caldwell City Council - Seat 4.

Kent Marmon isn't just a "resident" of Caldwell --
Kent has ALWAYS been an "Active Participant"
Kent Marmon has been deeply involved in community service all his life.
At 16, he went before the Caldwell City Council with a plan for a community youth / senior citizen center (his Eagle Scout service project) that he envisioned building with private funds on land near the park. The Council agreed to set aside land for the center, and Kent set out to work with community and business leaders to get the project rolling. He was able to enlist the support and assistance of an architect, an engineer, a lawyer, an accountant and a builder -- and the planning began. As it progressed, a group of senior citizens who believed that our youth already had enough facilities available to them, wanted a center of their own. At the request of then-Council President Al McCluskey, the project was put on hold. Later, then-Mayor Al McCluskey utilized the blueprints to construct the Senior Citizen Center that our seniors enjoy today.
