Dave’s communications career began at WGBB (Freeport, New York) where he began as night DJ to and steadily progressed to prime time Morning Show Host and Assistant Program Director for the station. His ten year stint was in the days before cable TV, when AM radio was the major source of news and information for a growing Long Island suburban community (the regional population exceeds 3 million).

His primary assignment was manager of media information services, where Dave became acquainted with the inner most political and governmental operations of the world’s largest mass transit provider.

Dave left the Town in 1987 for a similar position with Nassau County, where he stayed through 1999 until retiring from government service.
While in county government, Dave developed a reputation as a straight-shooter with the media, and was highly respected as a dependable and accurate news strategist and tactician.
Following his departure from the county, he served briefly as Editor of The Village Herald, and then for three years as Special Account Executive with Ryan PR in Farmingdale, NY. He joined the Boerner Communications team in late-2007.
