David grew up in Griffin and graduated from Woodward Academy, attended the University of Georgia and Augusta College where he completed his CPA Internship and earned his Bachelor’s Degree. Upon graduation, he moved to Albany and then Atlanta for work before coming back to Griffin to practice accounting in 1999. He met and married his wife Marie here in Griffin in 2005 and they have one son, John David. David has a passion for the outdoors and he makes sure he finds time for hunting and fishing and passing down those traditions and hobbies to his son.
Since taking office in 2005, David’s priority has been to safeguard conservative values and write comprehensive, logical policies that are aligned with the cornerstones of his home district. He has helped to expand the local UGA Griffin Campus, Southern Crescent Technical College and Gordon State College as well as attract economic development and quality jobs to Henry, Spalding and Lamar Counties.
