Pro-Growth Progressive Idea: Supporting investments in science and technology that grow the economy not just for a year or two, but for decades to come
David was elected in 2012 to the New York State Assembly, where he brings his experience as a local government official, his work as an economic analyst and an attorney, and his belief that public policy can help people obtain the skills and opportunities they need to provide for their families and contribute to their communities. In the Assembly, David has worked to strengthen ethics, make smart investments in infrastructure, and consolidate services in order to make government more efficient. Recently, he’s taken the lead on such issues as keeping the electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla in New York State and stripping pensions from convicted officials that violate the public trust.
Before serving in the Assembly, David worked at an economics research firm where his research focused on antitrust economics and then as a tax attorney. He was also a member of the White Plains Common Council, where he advocated for enhanced budget scrutiny, authored legislation strengthening the city’s code of ethics, and successfully pushed for zoning changes that brought dozens of good-paying jobs in scientific research to his community.
