David wants to make sure that all Floridians have an opportunity to pursue their dreams. He has the perfect background to represent District 113 in the Florida House of Representatives. He is in Tallahassee to identify waste in the State budget, so funds can be better used to improve our schools, preserve our environment, and improve health care. David Richardson is your advocate in Tallahassee.
David has truly lived the “American Dream.” Raised from humble beginnings, his family moved to Florida when he was ten years old. His father and mother worked hard to provide for the family. After completing high school, he attended the University of Central Florida, earning two degrees: Biology and Accountancy. Upon graduating he worked as an auditor for the U.S. Department of Defense. Richardson was charged with identifying fraud and waste in government contracts.
During his time as a pentagon auditor, he studied nights and weekends to earn a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of Tampa. In 1985 he completed all the requirements and was awarded a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certificate and license from the State of Florida, which he has maintained for the past 30 years.
After his tenure with the Department of Defense, David worked for Ernst & Young – one of the largest and most respected auditing and consulting firms in the world. During his time there he continued to develop his expertise in the area of government accounting and finance. In 1993, David pursued his dream of starting a small advisory services firm focused on accounting and finance issues relating to government contracts.
