My name is David Wallace and I live in Hopewell Valley with my wife, Erin, and our two daughters.
I determined at an early age, that I would pursue a life of public service. This began my senior year of high school when I enlisted in the United States Army Reserve as a Combat Engineer. While in the reserves, I attended the Butler County Peace Officer Academy. I served as an auxiliary police officer for the Village of Morrow before leaving to accept a full time position with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department. After receiving a Bachelor of Science in Middle Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati, I taught seventh and eighth grade Social Studies for Cincinnati Public Schools.
As with all Americans, September 11, 2001 had a lasting effect on me. To witness the country that I love so dearly under attack, forever changed me. After re-enlisting in the Ohio Army National Guard, I attended Officer Candidate School. After completing OCS, I was commissioned a Second Lieutenant and attended Armor Officer Basic at Ft Knox, KY. Two weeks after graduating from Armor School, I received deployment orders in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom where I served a year in Iraq.
After returning from Iraq, I accepted a full time position with the Ohio Army National Guard where I am currently employed. I have served as a Battalion Logistics Officer, Company Commander, Squadron Operations Officer and Brigade Logistics Officer. Most recently, I received my Masters of Science in Administration from Central Michigan University.
My desire to serve my community is reflected in my service with the Ohio National Guard as well as my volunteer work. I am an active member in St. Philips Church and in the Veterans of Foreign Wars. I participate in many veteran and community events which includes visiting local schools and speaking to our residents.
I am a strong conservative whose priorities include community safety, fiscal accountability and protecting taxpayer interests.
As always, feel free to call me at 513-899-1803 or click here to email if you have any questions or concerns. My ear is always to the ground and my door is always open.
