“Having been a police officer for thirty years, an administrative sergeant and a budget team member for my previous department, I know firsthand how important it is to have council support for such important city budget line items. As a gulf war veteran Dave has first-hand experience in what it takes to protect our country and, on a smaller scale, our city. Because of the military and law enforcement professions’ natural brotherhood, Dave is in touch with many needs of law enforcement and is committed to making funding for police training and manpower a priority.”
Serving my country was the most rewarding experience in my life. From the front lines of Desert Storm to serving in the National Guard when I got back, I met many incredible Americans and learned a lot along the way.
I was born on the eastside of Flint, Michigan. I graduated Flint Central High School in 1988, where I lettered in football, wrestling and track. Out of high school, I joined the United States Army on the delayed entry program. I attended boot camp at Fort Leonardwood, Missouri then was off to A.I.T. at Fort Lee, Virginia. Upon completion I was shipped out to Fort Hood, Texas 4th MMC 13th COSCOM.
While stationed at Fort Hood, duty called me to serve in the Persian Gulf War. I left active duty in October of 1995, after 6 years, 7 months, and 23 days. A back injury ended my time in the ARMY, the physical training was getting to be more than I could handle. I could have chose inactive reserve to serve rest of my 8 year obligation, but that’s not how I wanted to finish. I joined the National Guard in Lapeer, Michigan and finished my service. Loved every minute of it, well almost every minute.
I have served my country, and now I am ready to serve Allen. I am currently a member and serve on the board of the Allen Heritage Guild. I am on the Collin County Heritage Commission, the graveyard committee, the cruise committee, and the AID DIPC. I am a life member of the VFW where I currently serve as the Junior Vice Commander for the Allen Post. I have previously served as the Junior Vice Commander, Senior Vice Commander and Commander of the Plano VFW Post. I have lived in states from Michigan to Texas, to Georgia, to Florida, to Alaska, to Michigan again and finally back to Texas. I have lived in Texas for a total of 15 years and have been in Allen for 8 of those years.
Allen is a great community filled with great people, businesses, schools and a great Football and Hockey Team. I'm a proud to say I live here. It would be an honor and a privilege to serve on Allen's City Council and I would be extremely honored to have your vote.
