Biography

David's father died immediately and David sustained serious injuries. David's mother worked nights at Marie Callender's on Cedar & Shaw in Fresno so that she could spend days with her children. She eventually remarried Dave DeFrank, who legally adopted David while he was in grade school.

David was Executive Director of a not-for-profit statewide voter registration organization that registered more than 57,000 anti-Obamacare voters in the 2010 election cycle. DeFrank oversaw a seven figure budget and also served as general counsel to the organization.
