COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS

David Parker

Monroe County Commissioner

David Parker was born and raised in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.   He graduated from Messiah College with a degree in Business Administration, where he was a member of the student senate.  After working three years at Castles Lumber in Carlisle, PA, David joined the family business, Cramer’s Home Building Centers, which was started by his Great Grandfather, R.C. Cramer in 1915.  For 27 years, David served in various positions including: salesperson, assistant store manager, buyer, Director of Human Resources and most recently store manager at Cramer’s in Pocono Summit.  The company was sold in June 2022. David currently works at Walmart Distribution in Tobyhanna. 

In November 2014, David was elected State Representative of the newly created 115th legislative district in Monroe County.  He got right to work on School Property taxes and by May 2015, helped pass HB504 which would have reduced school property taxes in Monroe County by 40% for the average homeowner. Unfortunately, the bill was not voted on in the State Senate. When special interests and other lawmakers sought to disproportionately allocate new school funding to other parts of the State, David stood up for Monroe County and successfully fought to get more money for our schools using the new formula. There is still work to be done to get equity in school funding and David lead the charge with legislation (HB2111) and budget amendments. In addition to his efforts on school taxes and funding, David also authored Redistricting Reform Legislation (HB1835) in the House of Representatives which was supported by The League of Women Voters, The Commonwealth Foundation and www.FairDistrictsPA.com
