A dream career opportunity led David to support his wife’s decision in their move to Central California. The new location allowed David to rekindle another passion, sports memorabilia.  As the owner of CaliCards & More, he was responsible for the buying/selling of high price sports memorabilia through secure online and in-person venues.  These business dealings required daily interactions with business partners, customers, and distributors that were located across the country and throughout the world.

David watched as elected leaders jumped from office-to-office, but never attain any real-life skills. Unlike many that hold elected office, he believes the people know what is best for them.  He opposes the rising radicalism that is taking place in DC: taxes are too high, schools are failing, manmade droughts are killing jobs. There are no solutions coming from the DC career politicians. David aims to deliver on the Valley's priorities: water, improving the economy, and education.

David Giglio lives in Madera with his wife Linda, a pediatric nurse practitioner.
