MR. DAVID ROGERS – CITY COUNCILMAN PLACE 6
David Rogers wasn’t born in Texas, but he got here as fast as he could!
Mr. Rogers started kindergarten at a Montessori on Hollywood Blvd, first grade in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he discovered snow (true story!), and began Texas schooling in the Second Grade at Maplewood Elementary School. He went to O. Henry Junior High, graduated Austin High, University of Houston (Downtown), University of Southern California, and Texas Tech University Law School.
Along the way, he met and married his beautiful wife Lisa, and moved to Pflugerville, where all of their wonderful children have grown up, living in the same house since the day they came home from the hospital.
In 2004, Rogers joined the winning effort by Pflugerville Pfamilies Pfirst to stop a horse-race-track from being installed in eastern Pflugerville. In 2005, 2006, and 2007, Rogers backed the successful PPP candidates for council, including the first-ever black and Hispanic members of the Pflugerville City Council, Mark Gladney and Victor Gonzales.
From 2006 to 2008, Rogers served on the PCDC (Pflugerville Community Development Corporation), where he cast the tie-breaking vote to purchase the land at the corner of Pecan Street and Toll Road 130, today the home of the Courtyard by Marriott, Community Impact, and many other businesses that have made Pflugerville home.
After the PCDC, Rogers served longer than anyone else on the Pflugerville Board of Adjustment (becoming the “dean” of the Board, in then-councilman Gonzales’ words).
In the interim, Rogers worked for the Texas Supreme Court, for the Hazen & Terrill law firm, and founded his own independent law firm where he represents citizens, homeowners and small businesses defending their rights against government, banks, insurance companies, HOAs and assorted troublemakers.
His three kids are a paramedic trainee and college student, a cheerleader co-captain, and a dance team member. His wife is a PfISD teacher, international traveler and lover of languages and science.
Rogers enjoys high-school-Pfootball, movies, histories, science, economics, and battling the ever-present menace of obnoxious weeds in his yard. His hero is Winston Churchill. His role model is Mitch Poe.
Mr. Rogers loves our beautiful city and is honored to be serving as your City Councilman. He hopes to earn that honor again this year!
