David Grosso is chairperson of the Committee on Education of the Council of the District of Columbia. David was elected to the D.C. Council as an at-large member in November 2012 to represent residents in all eight wards. During his first two years in office, David focused on many issues with one main goal always at the forefront of his mind: making D.C. a better city. Central to that goal is education.
