Commissioner David Carrington

Commissioner David Carrington David Carrington is a husband, dad, granddad, businessman and elected public servant. David Carrington is now serving in his second term on the Jefferson County Commission.

He was first elected to the Commission in November 2010, after serving on the Vestavia Hills City Council for six years, four of which as its president. During his tenure on the council, from 2004 to 2010, the city experienced significant improvements in its financial performance, strategically purchased land for economic development and constructed a new state-of-the art community library and four Olympic-sized community athletic fields. Immediately after being sworn into office as a county commissioner, David was elected by his fellow commissioners to serve as the Commission President. In this capacity, David played a central role in developing and executing the financial strategy that led to Jefferson County exiting bankruptcy more than a year ahead of schedule and saving its citizens billions of dollars in future debt and interest payments. David was re-elected to the County Commission in November 2014 with more than 80% of the vote and now chairs the Commission’s Finance, Information Technology and Business Development Committee, where he has the opportunity to focus his entrepreneurial energies on economic development and job creation. Professionally, David is President of RacingUSA.com, the world’s most frequently shopped, independently-owned NASCAR store. He and his wife Sonia are active members of Shades Mountain Baptist Church and have two sons, two granddaughters and five grandsons, counting Sawyer who is scheduled to arrive in January.
