Alderman - Ward 4

Alderman David Young
Ward Four

Phone: 901-238-8001

Terms Served:
2021 to present

I have been in and around politics for some time.  I had a great Stallworth to learn from, Mr. Joe Cates. He was married to my sister, Charlotte. He taught me a lot and I soaked up every bit. I left this area and served over 12 years in the United States Navy and was medically discharged in October 1989. After I returned, my wife and I owned two very successful freight brokerages and operated a heavy haul division as well. I understand the challenges of business and its people. 

I have a strong background in the MSGOP. I accepted a position with Governor Barbour during his two terms and served the MSGOP as a field Representative. I am well weathered in Mississippi politics. I have recently retired from public service as an employee of the U. S. Government.

Many know me through my efforts in the Lions Clubs International.  I have served this humanitarian organization as a Lion for 17+ years.  This service to others, is especially important to me and my family.  I sincerely believe, you cannot get very far in life until you serve someone who is in need. 

I am a member of Disabled  American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion. I serve at Horn Lake Post 134 of the American Legion. My wife and I are active members of the ASPCA and fight for animals and their well being.
