David Reid is a decorated Navy veteran and business professional who brings over 30 years of experience in strategic management, global telecommunications, and the defense industry to his campaign to represent Virginia’s 32 House of Delegates District in Eastern Loudoun County. In 1972, David and his siblings moved from Rockbridge County, Virginia—where they lived in a four-room house without an indoor bathroom—to the United Methodist Children’s Home in Richmond. David was later adopted by foster parents and moved to Oklahoma. He became the first member of his family to graduate from college.
Grateful for the opportunities his country had provided him, David heeded the call to give back by joining the Navy Reserve. David served 23 years in the US Navy Reserve as a Naval Intelligence Officer, where he retired as a Commander. David and his wife of 23 years have lived in Ashburn since 2000. Their two daughters received an outstanding education at Loudoun County Public Schools and now attend the University of Virginia and Lynchburg College.
"For the first ten years of my life, my family and I lived without healthcare, so this issue is deeply personal to me. When my siblings and I moved to the Children’s Home, the healthcare professionals there wanted to remove my 16-year old sister’s teeth and give her dentures because her teeth were in such bad condition. I’m grateful for the healthcare I received at the Children’s Home and from my foster parents and know how important it is to improving quality of life. That is why you can count on me to fight for expanding access to healthcare to all Virginians."
"Separately, as the first person in my family to earn a college degree, I know how important a college education is to breaking the cycle of poverty and providing a pathway to achieving the American Dream. In Richmond, I will fight against tuition increases, ensure we invest in higher education, and break the cycle of excessive student loan debt."
