David Buckingham was elected MLA for Saskatoon Westview in the April 2016 provincial election. He currently serves as Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Immigration and as a member of the Meewasin Valley Authority Board.
Born and raised in a farming community near Shellbrook, Saskatchewan, David moved to Saskatoon in 1979 to pursue a career in the car hauling business as a commercial driver. In 1988, David and his wife Karen moved to the community of Borden to raise their three children.
Always an active volunteer in his community, David has served as a volunteer firefighter, president of the Borden Parks and Recreation Committee and as the co-founder of the Highway 16 Fire Commission, a group that was formed to regionalize training for volunteer firefighters.
David served two terms as mayor of the Village of Borden. Prior to that he served one term as a councillor. A background in municipal government has given David a strong understanding of the challenges growing and vibrant communities face. He wants to ensure Saskatoon Westview has a voice at the provincial level as their community continues to grow.
David and his wife Karen enjoy spending time with their three children and three granddaughters.
