David Shorr was elected as Second District Alderperson in April 2016. He currently serves on the Finance and Personnel Committees and the Transportation Commission.
David has a background in public affairs, both professionally and as an active volunteer. He has spent most of his career working on foreign policy issues for organizations such as the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Stanley Foundation, Human Rights First, Search for Common Ground, and Refugees International.
David held leadership positions in the last two communities where he lived, serving as vice chair of the Iowa City Human Rights Commission and board president of Offender Aid and Restoration of Arlington County (Virginia). He earned his Masters in Public Administration from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
David wants to help make the community we love a place where even more people will want to live and work. His wife is a professor in the UWSP Music Department, and their daughter graduated from SPASH in 2014 and currently attends a college that is "too far away."
When he isn't delving into problems of policy and politics, David is playing tennis, watching players on the pro tour, or umpiring youth, adult, or WIAA tournaments.
