"From the time I met David three years ago, what struck me most was his focus on addressing the every day needs and issues of the local community. As a Ward 2 resident, that is important to me. He is also deeply invested and dedicated to Newton having great schools. As an NPS parent and School Committee member, that is equally important. I look forward to having David as a partner on the City Council."

-Chris Brezski, School Committee Member, Ward 2

"I've known David for several years through his involvement in Newton public service and respect the way he approaches the issues with an independent, open and curious mind. He is committed to listening and learning from constituents and I'm excited for the opportunity to partner with David on the Council in representing the residents of Ward 2."

-Tarik Lucas, City Councilor At-Large, Ward 2


"David will be a strong, independent voice for Ward 2. With a focus on constituent services, he is committed to working on the nuts and bolts issues that affect residents' daily lives. His collaborative approach will be a welcome addition on the Council, and I look forward to working with him."

-Becky Walker Grossman, City Councilor & Finance Committee Chair
