About Dave Sunday

Dave’s desire to serve began at the age of 18, when he enlisted in the United States Navy. Dave received his Juris Doctorate from Widener Law School. After brief stints at the United Nations and private practice, Dave moved back to York and began a clerkship to the Honorable Joseph C. Adams. In 2009 he joined the York County District Attorney’s office as a prosecutor. In 2013 Dave worked with Coroner Pam Gay to establish the York County Heroin Task Force, now the York Opioid Collaborative. It was this time spent in the community that helped Dave realize the impact he could have when seeking to maximize public and private partnerships. As district attorney, Dave now serves on the Board of Directors for the York Opioid Collaborative, the Criminal Justice Advisory Board, York County Prison Board and Better York.
