David’s background is retail – his family owned and operated a fine jewelry store in Connecticut. He chose, much to his family’s chagrin, not to take his place in the business when he graduated from Brown. Instead he waded right into the oft-maligned world of politics, working directly for then-Senator Lowell Weicker, Jr. in his short-lived but amusing presidential campaign (We’ll bet you don’t remember that one!). The day after he withdrew from the 1980 race, David went to work on the first George H. W. Bush presidential campaign, and enjoyed several months of accompanying Mr. Bush to events in New England. David has expressed what a pleasure and honor it was to get to know him, albeit briefly, and Barbara Bush (and even to meet the Bush sons). As the campaign started to gear up in earnest, David realized that this was not his calling, and so he left the campaign to start law school. He managed to keep one finger in the political pie, however, being elected Democrat (yes, that’s right) Town Committee Chair in the small Republican town of Barrington, Rhode Island in the 1980’s. When the Democrats won their first Town Council majority in dozens of years, it was time for David to declare victory and end his brief political career.
