Public Service is the Lifeblood
David Cohen is running for a seat on the North Haven Board of Finance. In his role as in-house counsel for a public company based in Wallingford, David oversees the legal aspects of the company’s most important initiatives. He analyzes the financial and economic considerations in connection to acquisitions and manages complex transactions for businesses of all sizes to help them achieve their strategic goals.
Before law school, David was a middle school American history teacher in Oakland, California through the Teach For America program. He believes that public service is the lifeblood of a well-functioning democracy, and that good governance demands transparency, thoughtful deliberation, and a diversity of voices to build stronger and more resilient communities. David’s children attend the North Haven public schools and he values all of the small businesses North Haven has to offer.
In his free time, David enjoys going for bike rides with his family, playing ultimate Frisbee, and singing loudly. He is excited to get to work representing the people of North Haven!
