Mayor of Swansea

David was born in 1958 and he was the youngest child of Lilian and Bryn. 

He attended St Joseph's Primary School and then later Bishop Vaughan Comprehensive School. While learning his trade as a panel beater and sprayer at BT Rees, Oxford Street he sat his City & Guilds at Mount Pleasant Campus.  

David met Beverley in 1978 they then married in 1980.  They have three daughters Nicola, Emma and Kirsty.  They also have four grandchildren Fletcher, Callie, Phoebe and Marnie and they are all very supportive of everything David has done.  David plays a very important part in his children and grandchildren's life and is a big role model for them.  

After 6 years working in the garage trade an opportunity arose for him to go into manufacturing in aluminium wire and cable in Port Tennant where he worked for 17 years and during this time he became very involved in the T&G Union now known as Unite in which he held the role as Chair.  He took a keen interest in Health and Safety and equal rights and feels very strongly on these issues.  He now works for Real Alloy a Recycling Plant in Waunarlwydd where he is still very active and is Chair of the Union.  He is also a representative on the European Works Council.  

David comes from a very strong political family, with his mother Lilian Hopkin being a former long standing Councillor representing the Cockett Ward for over 30 years. He was very proud of his mother when she became Lord Mayor of Swansea in 1986 and now he is following in her footsteps and feels this opportunity is a real privilege.

In May 1991 David was successful in being elected to represent the people of Townhill, Mayhill and Gors.  He has been representing this ward for the past 25 years.  He is very grateful for the support of his constituents and the many friendships he has built up over this time.  

During his many years representing the Townhill ward he has held numerous posts within the council, and at present is the Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation. 

Beverley was born in 1957 and after having their three daughters became actively involved in the Hafod community.  She sits on the governing body of Hafod and Plasmarl Primary School and runs a parent and toddler group in Hafod Community Centre where she sits on the management committee.  She is also a councillor for the Landore Ward.
