Dave White knows our commonwealth's best days lie just ahead of us with the right leadership and a plan that puts Pennsylvanians first. That is why Dave is seeking the Republican nomination for governor. Dave has a proven record of leading and success in both the public and private sectors. He knows that by unleashing the power of the private sector, Pennsylvania can lead the nation and become a go-to destination for businesses looking to relocate and families looking for the best place to live, work and raise their families.
As a third-generation Steamfitter, Dave has more than 40 years of experience in HVAC installation and servicing. After working decades as a Union Pipefitter, in 2005, Dave put his background and knowledge of mechanical systems and founded DWD Mechanical Contractor Inc.
After starting his own company, Dave helped build it from a small HVAC company into one of the "go-to" HVAC companies in southeastern Pennsylvania and employs over eighty hardworking people in family- sustaining jobs.
Cutting his teeth as a blue-collar worker, Dave understands that the Republican Party is the party of the working Pennsylvanian. That is why he was a supporter of President Donald J. Trump's America First agenda. President Trump's agenda cemented the Republican Party's position as the party of hardworking Americans. President Trump put American workers first by supporting the development of domestic energy production, renegotiating the unfair NAFTA agreement and successfully working with Congress to pass the USMCA. Dave plans to bring the same pro-business, pro-worker agenda to Pennsylvania to uncork the potential of our commonwealth.
As Pennsylvania is home to one of the largest populations of veterans in our nation, Dave believes we must show these brave patriots the respect they have earned and provide them with the support they need. That is why Dave is an avid supporter of veterans and was presented with a plaque by the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum, where they named a room in his honor. The "David White Room" was dedicated in recognition of his contributions in turning an unfinished room into a state-of-the-art conference room. For his efforts, Dave was presented with the "Hendrick Award" for outstanding service to the Pennsylvania Veterans Museum. In addition, he continuously supports the Delaware County's Veteran's Memorial Association and their various tributes to veterans, including the Memorial in Newtown Square, where the names of his mother and father are engraved on the World War II column.
As part of his service to support his local community, Dave helps advocate for residents living with special needs. As a father to a 33-year-old adult son, Brian, with special needs, he understands the challenges these residents and their families face each day.
