David lives in East Oxford with his two daughters. He works as a water engineer for the employee-owned consultancy Mott MacDonald, focusing on the upgrade of large treatment plants in the UK, and helping bring clean water and sanitation to low-income urban areas in developing countries.

He was elected as a Green Party councillor in 2014, and became the leader of the Oxford City Green Group in 2017. During his time as a councillor he has focused on tackling low pay, homelessness, rough sleeping, food poverty, air quality, social inequality, and the viability of local businesses.

For several months in 2010 David found himself homeless. He was fortunate in finding a room in a hostel on Cowley Road. This experience formed the basis of David's tireless campaigning to fight for the rights and the dignity of the homeless.

David has the independence, drive and empathy to speak up for those without a voice, and the strength and experience to hold the city's ruling Labour Group to account. "With the Labour-run council dragging its feet on solving St Clement's shocking air pollution problems, and steamrolling through unpopular plans to sell off half the East Oxford Community Centre site, St Clement's needs Green Party representation now more than ever," he says.

His main priorities are:

  • Ending the homelessness crisis
  • Introducing fairer rents
  • Tackling air pollution
  • Saving local community facilities
  • Protecting the environment
  • Challenging Brexit
