Dave will be speaking to the Rappahannock County Democrats at the August 2, 2011 meeting. Below is some introductory biographical information he provided:

Months after graduation, David entered the USAF as a Second Lieutenant and became a Navigator on a B-52. After two years as a navigator, he earned his wings as a pilot and later flew combat missions in Vietnam in the RF-4C, tactical reconnaissance aircraft. He received his master’s degree in public administration while stationed at Hickam AFB, Hawaii.

During David’s Air Force tenure, he was the aid to the Commander of the Pacific Air Forces and ended his tour of duty at the Pentagon working in Air Force Plans and the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Lt Colonel Hunsicker retired after 20 years of service in January 1982 .

After the Air Force, David begin a new career in the real estate business as a real estate broker, residential home builder and real estate appraiser and over the next 29 years lived in Texas, California and five years in Lexington, Virginia.

Many people have asked David why he is seeking public office? “As a lifelong Democrat who has worked phone banks, walked precincts, and run twice for Congressional office, my answer is simply this: The average working class person has seen the American Dream become a distant memory. Our country has become an oligarchy. If you elect me as your Congressman I will do everything I can to bring this Government back to ‘We the People’ and shift the economic wealth back to the majority of hard working, middle class Americans.”
