During his time as County Commissioner, David has continued along that same path. He prioritizes issues such as affordable access to healthcare, serving our veterans, economic development, paying people what they deserve and quality of life. He has proven that he is dedicated to helping as many people as possible within the community he represents and that he sincerely cares about the future of El Paso.
In the area of healthcare he worked tirelessly during his first year in office to find a solution to the problems El Paso Children’s Hospital was facing, and helped bring the hospital under the wing of the County and University Medical Center, allowing Children’s to continue its mission to serve so many youngsters here in El Paso, instead of having to send them away for treatment. His leadership as the Vice Chair of the Local Mental Health Authority, Emergence Health Network, has brought about positive changes not only in the direction in which the organization is moving and the goals they are setting for themselves, but also the creation of new programs such as Crisis Intervention Training for police officers, which will help them better understand the mentally ill when they come across situations in which they are involved.
