My name is David I. Shiner and I am running to be your next Palm Beach County Commissioner for District 5.  I believe a County Commissioner should put the community first and focus on your issues as priorities.  For so many years politicians have become complacent and have forgotten their true mandate, to represent you.

I am not a politician, I am a successful businessman and an attorney who lives and works in our community.  This race should not be about politics – the focus should be on what is in the best interests of the community.   Palm Beach County District 5 needs a true effective business leader to help drive efficiency and better management within our local community.

I was born in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and have lived in Delray Beach, Florida for the last 15 years with my wife and two children. My wife, Laura and I were married in Boynton Beach and have been together ever since.  In 2011 our first son Lucas was born and shortly afterward, Benjamin, our second son, was born in 2012.  Our sons attended B’nai Israel for preschool and, since kindergarten, they have attended local public elementary school.  To this day we are proud to call South Palm Beach County our home!

My entire professional career has been as an attorney and business owner with a focus on helping individuals and businesses.  As a civil trial attorney, I have focused on representing individuals who needed dedicated, professional, and caring representation – generally, helping my clients reach pragmatic and just resolutions through dedicated advocacy through difficult times.  I have also represented businesses throughout my career and helped those businesses reach successful outcomes through “out-of-the-box” thinking and negotiations – and when necessary, through skilled representation at trial.

I enjoy spending my time with my family and being outdoors as well as giving back to the community which has done so much for me and my family.   

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and our campaign better and I look forward to hearing from you.

Please join my family and friends in supporting me and coming out to vote.

Very Truly Yours,

David Irving Shiner
