Born in Cleveland in 1957, Dave is a lifelong Ohioan who has dedicated his life to his family and his community. Raised by his father, a WWII veteran, and mother, a proud housewife, Dave graduated from West Geauga High School and went on to receive his BA in Accounting, and Juris Doctorate, from The University of Dayton. Upon graduation, he worked as a public defender. While running for Geauga County Prosecutor in 1988, Dave met a fellow West Geauga High School grad, Kelly, whom he married in 1990.

Throughout his 25 years of service as the Geauga County Prosecuting Attorney, Dave built a reputation as being a protector of both Geauga County families and Geauga County taxpayers, providing the highest quality legal work in the most cost-efficient manner possible. In 2005, the Ohio State Women's Bar Association presented Dave with the "Family Friendly Workplace Award" for providing his employees a family-oriented office environment. In 2008, Forbes magazine named Geauga County the fourth best county in the nation to raise a family, citing the low crime rate and solid housing stock. In November 2012, Dave was elected to represent the 14th District of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives. This Congress, the 117th, is his fifth term in office.

Dave serves on the influential House Committee on Appropriations, which is the committee responsible for scrutinizing federal spending and determining how your tax dollars are spent. He sits on the Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee and is the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies, where he has established himself as a champion of the bipartisan effort to preserve and protect the Great Lakes. His service on the Appropriations Committee enabled Dave to help reduce federal discretionary spending by over $21 Billion in FY14, which is the first time since the Korean War spending has been cut four consecutive years.

As a former prosecutor, the safety and wellbeing of Ohio's communities still remain one of Dave's top priorities. He co-founded the Bipartisan Task Force to End Sexual Violence in the 115th Congress, is the Vice Chair of the Addiction, Treatment and Recovery Caucus and is an active member of the Bipartisan Opioid Task Force. With Ohio being one of the states hit hardest by the opioid crisis, Dave has fought to ensure that the federal funding Congress provides to combat the crisis effectively supports the lifesaving work being done by local communities.

Keeping with a tradition he established while serving as Geauga County Prosecutor, Dave has returned more than $800,000 from his Congressional budget to the U.S. Treasury since 2013. Dave resides in Bainbridge Township, Ohio, with his wife Kelly. They have three children- Trenton, Keighle, and Bridey.
