David is a labor and education activist running for city council in Chicago’s 11th Ward.
David understands the current economy because he’s lived it. Although he’s been fortunate to receive a good education, the decline of full-time jobs with benefits has caused him to work multiple short-term and low-wage jobs a year.
During this time, he has fought in many unionization drives, including 2 recent campaigns that brought 2500+ workers into AFT-IFT and 200+ workers into Teamsters Local 743.
He has also done financial investigative reporting on college student debt and “where the money goes.”
