David Collins

Government Affairs Associate

The Statesman.

A former D1 Football player at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, David leads our Government Affairs division with both candor and grace. David serves as an effective influencer in the Government Affairs space by always speaking the truth and managing expectations accordingly. When he’s not at the capitol building, he’s hanging with his niece Salem Marie and nephew William, citing Hunter S. Thompson, or on a Carolina lake, fishing.

How Does David #ForgeAhead: Through persistently showing up, and never backing down.
