David and his family have been homeowners in Sunnyside for over twenty years and members of SNA for ten. He has previously served on the board of SNA as a Member at Large. Returning to the board in 2020, he hopes to make a positive difference going forward—specifically, making Sunnyside a better place for people born in this century. His areas of local interest are housing, transportation, and the Ocean Campus of City College. He’s a big believer in e-bikes, and credits one with keeping him healthy at age 70+.
