Richard David is a Democratic candidate for the City Council in District 28. He has worked at senior levels of government for over ten years, the most of any candidate in this race although he is the youngest candidate at age 31. He also has an established track record of community involvement as a 9 year member of Queens Community Board 9 and as the co-founder of one of the most active social justice, youth focused organizations in Southeast Queens, the ICA. Richard went to public schools all his life, and graduated from Hunter College. He then went on to earn his Master’s from New York University.

​Richard lives in South Ozone Park with his family. This is his first time running for public office — every candidate in this race has ran before. We need a new generation of leadership, with fresh new ideas that will bring more funding and resources to our district
