David Toscano

David Toscano is serving his seventh term in the Virginia General Assembly. He represents the 57th District (Charlottesville and part of Albemarle County) in the House of Delegates and, from November 2011 through December 2018, served as House Democratic Leader. David is a member of the Courts of Justice; Commerce and Labor; and Rules committees, and the Select Committee on School Safety.

An attorney with Buck, Toscano & Tereskerz, Ltd., David specializes in family law, real estate transactions, and estate planning.

David’s priorities are education, energy, and the environment. He fights for education funding, against teacher pay freezes, and to protect VRS and retirement benefits. He pushes the cause of renewable energy, and stood against those who deny the reality of climate change.  He opposes predatory lending in its various forms. He argues for multifaceted transportation programs that include roads, rail, and public transit. He opposes cuts to services for the poor and disabled, defends a woman’s right to choose, and advances reforms in foster care and adoption, so that all children will have the opportunity to live productive lives in family settings free from abuse and neglect.

The Virginia League of Conservation Voters has named David a “Legislative Hero” eleven consecutive years for his work on environmental issues.

David was born in Syracuse, New York, the oldest of five children.  He received a bachelor’s degree from Colgate University, a Ph.D. from Boston College, and a law degree from the University of Virginia.  He has taught politics and sociology at various colleges and universities, including Boston College, University of Maryland (European Division), PVCC, University of Virginia, and James Madison University.  He taught for the University of Virginia as part of its 14-week Semester at Sea program.

David served on the Charlottesville City Council from 1990 to 2002 and as Mayor 1994-96.  David is a resident of the City of Charlottesville, where he lives with his wife, Nancy A. Tramontin, and their son, Matthew.

David wants to hear from you so he can represent the interests of all residents of Albemarle and Charlottesville in the 57th District.
