Web Manager

David has served as web manager for the Green Party since 2007. His entire career has been spent in the graphic arts, from college photographer; offset platemaker, cameramen, 4/C stripper and compositor, desktop publishing technician; photographer / journalist and finally to web developer.

A 1977 graduate of The Cooper Union in New York City, Doonan began his career in politics circulating petitions for an anti-war congressional candidate in Springfield, MA. in 1968. In 2008 he was elected Village Mayor of Greenwich, New York. He served until 2018 when he choose not to seek re-election. Doonan has provided web, communications and strategic advise for Green Party candidates throughout the country.

Shortly before 9/11, Doonan left full time employment to become a self-employed web developer. Shortly after 9/11 Doonan changed his party registration to Green as a silent protest against the calls for vengeance rather than justice.

Doonan lives with Judy, his wife of countless years, two cats who fully live up to their names (Trouble and Turbo) and has his heart constantly broken by Tottenham Hotspur and the Buffalo Bills. At least the Red Sox & Celtics have brought him joy.
