As a school board member, David has worked to increase parental and community involvement in our schools.

These alumni associations are now supporting their respective schools through scholarships, mentoring programs and demonstrating to students what they can achieve if they work hard and set goals.

As an Assistant Attorney General, he was the legal counsel to the Arizona School Facilities Board and he successfully represented the State of Arizona in school funding lawsuits. David also gained significant legislative experience prior to being elected to the House of Representatives, as a non-partisan lawyer for the State Senate Judiciary Committee where he worked with Democrats and Republicans on all legislation dealing with prisons, the criminal code, election law and the courts.

David is also a volunteer big brother with Valley Big Brothers Big Sisters and is an attorney coach for the Central High School mock trial team.
