David was born and raised in Scarborough, where he developed a love of Toronto and a passion for city issues. Growing up as a frequent rider on the TTC, David came to understand and appreciate Toronto’s need for a strong working relationship with the province in order to build and maintain badly-needed transit infrastructure.
Toronto needs a strong advocate at the provincial level who will push for dedicated, sustainable transit funding, and remove the political interference that delays transit growth. David is running for the Green Party to be the ally the city needs, and to work with Toronto to ensure its continued economic growth to the benefit of all residents.
David received his B. Comm. from Ryerson University, and currently works in product development for one of the large Canadian banks. He lives with his wife and three-year old daughter just off the Danforth. David’s family gave up their car ten years ago to live a greener, more environmentally-friendly lifestyle, and rely on the TTC, GO trains, and car sharing services as the primary means of travelling throughout our beautiful city.
