Meet David

David Zilles lives in Lynchburg, in the 23rd District of Virginia, where he is raising his two young children and working as a thermal fluids engineer.

David grew up in a tight-knit military family in a small town in Ohio where David and his three siblings were surrounded by extended family.

After graduating from The Ohio State University with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering, David began his career and in 2012 moved to Lynchburg.

David was compelled to action in February 2018 after one of the largest mass school shootings in U.S. history occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

Today, David is running for a better commonwealth for us all – focusing on affordable healthcare, investing in education for our children’s future, and sensible gun reform.
