   Welcome to my home on the web   

Nathan Martin, Pineville City Council District 5 Hello, my name is Nathan Martin and I'm the City Councilman for Pineville's District 5. I've designed this web site to tell you a bit about me and to hear from residents of District 5 as to your concerns. I hope you'll explore the various pages of this site and get to know me and my family a little better. And please use my feedback page to let me know how the City of Pineville can serve you better!




I've been a resident of Pineville for most of my life as my family moved back to Pineville when I was in the 8th grade. (My dad was born in Pineville and our line of Martins has been in Central Louisiana since before Louisiana was a state. The first Martin in Louisiana was William Martin who was a Revolutionary War soldier. He is buried in Vernon Parish.) I've been here ever since except for the time I left to study after high school and the 4 years I spent in Mexico as a missionary with World Indigenous Missions. I returned to Pineville in 1990 with my wife and 1st daughter and we've put our roots down deep. We've had two more daughters and bought a home as well as opened a couple of businesses (Precision Woodworks and Martin Properties) in Pineville. I am deeply committed to Pineville and want to see it grow and prosper. Please contact me if I can serve you.
