Career

Mock became known in the 2009 legislative session with his fight to create an independent redistricting commission.[3] He worked with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reduce transportation costs for state travel,[4] freeze tuition increases for North Dakota college students,[5] and implement tax cuts[6] that benefited all residents of North Dakota. Mock was also a leading voice in the fight to end discrimination in housing, employment and financial assistance based on sexual orientation and gender identity,[7] and in changing the law to allow fire stations to be permitted safe havens for abandoned infants.[8] In the legislature, he serves on the education and political subdivision committees of the legislative assembly. Here he works with local leaders to address issues that are important to the state and individual communities.

In addition to his work as a state legislator, Mock also serves as the Executive Director of the Third Street Clinic, a non-profit free clinic that provides access to health care services for low-income residents of Grand Forks and Polk counties.[9] He is a member of North Dakota Farmers Union, Rotary International, GF/EGF Chamber of Commerce, Young Professionals, Sons of Norway, and is a volunteer at the Circle of Friends Humane Society. Mock also serves on the Board of Directors of North Dakota Leadership Seminar, and has been a staff member of American Legion Boys State since 2003.
