Building welcoming and inclusive communities, where everyone matters,
is of utmost importance to David.  This is his priority on the Council and
professionally in education policy advocacy and research. As a Prince George’s
County Public Schools teacher, he sought to foster community by relocating
near his students and families—landing in New Carrollton. His students, many
of whom have gone on to become first-generation college graduates (like David),
have reinforced the potential of our community—and the work needed to reach
even more residents.
David is an avid runner and an Alpha Phi Omega member.
