My Top 3 Priorities

  • As Assessor, I will fight for transparency, accessibility, and accountability in our property tax system to fund our schools and vital community services
  • As County Clerk-Recorder, I will accelerate the digitization of critical county records and open historical data for analytics
  • As Chief Elections Officer, I will strengthen election integrity including voting and running for office by becoming a true partner with our diverse communities



David Pollack has spent much of his career negotiating complex critical infrastructure projects and working with global start-ups in establishing and growing their U.S. operations in wireless, VPN, and cybersecurity technologies. David is currently the founder and principal consultant at FirstAID Labs, where he and his team help area nonprofits forge relationships with the philanthropic world.

Born and raised in Fair Lawn, New Jersey, home to the best bagels in the world, David grew up with a passion for politics and civic engagement working on local and national elections and student council campaigns through high school. After graduating from The George Washington University with a B.A. in Economics and Japanese Studies, he landed his first job in Tokyo with a global trading conglomerate in project finance.

Heeding the call for help in the classroom, most days you’ll find him substitute teaching in area classrooms.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Funding our public schools, paying for vital community services, and investing in the infrastructure needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – all deserve a faithful steward overseeing the county’s multibillion-dollar property tax base. My professional experience and deep involvement in the community tell me we can do better here in San Mateo. I can make positive changes to the current status quo – from transparency in property valuations and their contribution to our tax base and accessibility to public records, to civic participation in voting and running for elected office. Everyone deserves the opportunity to fully participate in decision-making.
