David Myles, elected in November 2019, is serving his first term as a Rockville councilmember.
He completed his pediatrics medical training in Baltimore, at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He first moved to Maryland in 2010, following medical and graduate school at Yale University, and is a proud Morehouse College alumnus.
Dr. Myles served three years 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, on completion of that active-duty assignment, he returned to Rockville.
He is a cyclist and was a member of the Rockville Bike Advisory Committee.
Dr. 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 has served as the opioid liaison to the Maryland chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and at the national level of the AAP on the Committee on State Government Affairs, and has been involved in the Rockville Goes Purple campaign, the city’s ongoing fight to bring awareness to the national impact of opioid addiction and signal hope for recovery.
