David Myles, first elected in 2019 and re-elected in 2023, is serving his second term as a Rockville councilmember.
He completed his pediatrics medical training in Baltimore, at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Myles first moved to Maryland in 2010, following medical and graduate school at Yale University, and is a proud Morehouse College alumnus.
He served three years on active duty in the United States Navy and deployed for seven months on a humanitarian medical mission, providing pediatric care in Central and South America. In 2016, when he completed that active-duty assignment, he returned to Rockville.
Myles worked previously as a pediatrician in an emergency department in rural Maryland — an experience that prompted him to join Montgomery County’s Mental Health Advisory Committee as a physician representative.
He serves on Maryland’s Opioid Restitution Fund Advisory Council, has served as the opioid liaison to the Maryland chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and on AAP’s Committee on State Government Affairs. Additionally, Myles has been involved in the Rockville Goes Purple campaign, the city’s ongoing fight to bring awareness to the national impact of opioid misuse and signal hope for recovery.
