InfoDavid McSweeney, 39 years old, lives in Barrington Township with his wife Margaret and their daughters Melissa, almost 12 years old, and Katie, 10 years old. He recently left his position as a successful Managing Director with a major investment banking firm to focus on the Congressional race. He was in an accelerated BA/MBA program and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Duke University in 1987 and his Master of Business Administration degree from the Duke Fuqua School of Business in 1988.

David's main interests include family, politics, and the community. Born in Park Ridge, David grew up in Long Grove and Barrington. With two busy daughters, he spends many hours attending dance recitals, choir concerts and piano recitals. His daughters share their dad's enthusiasm for Chicago football, baseball and basketball.

David's interest in politics began at an early age as a page for a State Senator in Springfield. His internship with the Reagan-Bush campaign in 1984 further expanded his interest. David served as a Palatine Township Trustee from 1995 - 2000. He is a Precinct Captain in both Barrington and Schaumburg Townships. David supports candidates on the local, state and federal level and has been a top fundraiser for Speaker Dennis Hastert.

The community is another priority for the McSweeney family. They are active members of the Lutheran Church of the Atonement. As newlyweds in New York City, David and Margaret tutored at risk students in Harlem. Margaret serves on the Board of Directors for W.I.N.G.S. (Women in Need Growing Stronger), an organization which helps homeless women and their children get a new start in life. As a Palatine Township trustee, David served on the Human Needs Committee, which involved extensive outreach to the community.
