Why I'm Running

I’m an eleven-year Gaithersburg resident and I’m proud to have grown and raised my family here. Gaithersburg values its diversity, it supports those in need, and works to build up and empower its residents.

I’m running for City Council because I want to ensure that Gaithersburg continues to uphold its values and I want to help our great city be even better.

Learn About Dave and His Positions


Dave Belgard has been a Montgomery County resident for over 30 years and a Gaithersburg resident since 2010. Prior to 2010, he lived on the Rockville side of Shady Grove Road and would longingly look at the Gaithersburg side whenever it snowed and the Gaithersburg plows would come through.

He believes strongly in this city, its mission, and its residents. As a council member, Dave will ensure that Gaithersburg maintains its focus on fiscal responsibility while also encouraging diverse job growth, community engagement, investing in the city, and decreasing our environmental impact.

Dave currently serves the city on the Police Advisory Committee and the Community Advisory Committee. He previously served on the CPSC Park Advisory Committee.
