There are too many able-bodied citizens who want to live and work in Athens but they simply cannot get a job. As Commissioner, David will take an active role in recruiting employers who hire across all skill-sets and educational backgrounds.

Above all, David will be prudent and not squander current economic opportunities. Yet he will also plan for the future and ensure that Athens-Clarke County has the appropriate zoning and infrastructure to facilitate future investment and job creating opportunities.
Athens needs sound economic policies that will encourage trade and industry both for this generation and for the generations to come.
