Councilmember, District 1
Dave is a long-time resident of East Pierce County, having grown up on Lake Tapps, and attended Sumner schools before moving to South Hill where he has lived for 37 years.
As a State Representative for the 25th Legislative District - transportation and criminal justice committees, he has also served as a Fire Commissioner - Central Pierce Fire & Rescue, a County Charter review board member, various Pierce County Government Boards and Commissions and on the Government Affairs Committee for the Puyallup-Sumner Chamber of Commerce.

Pierce County is using CARES Act funds to buy (personal protective equipment) PPE in bulk and get it in the hands of those who need it most. To help keep our community safe as we enter Phase 2, Pierce County distributed free PPE to first responders and local businesses. The free PPE distribution ensures those on the front line, as well as local businesses, stay safe while keeping our community healthy and in action.
