David Gillespie
About David Gillespie

I have been with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs as District Manager of the Broward County Long Term Care Ombudsman Council for one year. Prior to coming to Broward County, I worked for the City of Orlando, FL. I have spent 20 years in civil rights law enforcement and mediation. From 1990-1992, I was the State of West Virginia's liaison to the US Office of Civil Rights and in 2007, my article on hate crimes was published in the Journal of American Mensa (I am also a member). I am a noted speaker for employer groups on how to avoid and survive discrimination complaints. Though most of my experience is with government agencies, I have seven years worth of private sector experience in office management and supervision. The short statement of my philosophy is "Success through teamwork by synergy - the strength of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts."

I am also an internationally marketed visual artist. In April 2011, I had a one man gallery show in Las Vegas, Nevada and was the June 2011 featured artist of the city of Tamarac, FL.
