About David

Proven leadership. Decades of public service. Dedication to helping his neighbours. The desire to create a stronger Sudbury. These are reasons why David Farrow is running to be your next MPP in the riding of Sudbury.

David spent his entire career dedicated to serving others, elevating all of those around him. He earned high honours for his commitment to excellence in education, including Outstanding Contribution to the Co-Curricular Program from the Rainbow District School Board and the Council of Exceptional Children (Chapter 503) Appreciation Award. After graduating on the Dean’s List at Mount Allison University with two bachelor’s degrees, he embarked on his path as an educator. Eventually, he became a Principal with the Rainbow District School Board, which he held from 2000 to 2018 when he retired with distinction.

Outside of his professional career, David is a community steward. He currently serves as the board chair for Maison McCulloch Hospice. In the past, he worked with the CIBC Run for the Cure, Sudbury Food Bank, Canadian Breast Cancer Society, Larch Street Kids, and the Rainbow Catholic Co-Ed Basketball Tournament, which he founded, and ran for 14 years.

His charitable efforts earned him the Celebration 2010 Community Sport Volunteer Award in Sudbury, the Ontario Volunteer Service Award, and recognition with the Provincial CIBC Run for the Cure in which his team raised over $500,000 for cancer research.

David will bring his strong work ethic, compassion, and community values to the role of Sudbury MPP, taking the concerns and issues of his Sudbury neighbours to Toronto with the full support of the Ontario Liberal Party. He will strengthen public healthcare and education, and develop a strong and diverse local economy. David believes that hard work is the pathway to success, whether as a small business owner or as an employee.

Most importantly, David would not be in the position of serving without the support of his family. He has been married to respected geologist Catharine for 33 years and is the dedicated father to Wilson, recently drafted by the Sudbury Wolves.

His no-nonsense, honest, and hard-working approach to politics will further strengthen the voices of the Sudbury community.
