David Linden was elected to the Roanoke County School Board in November 2017, becoming only the second person ever to be elected to the Hollins seat on the school board.  Linden, a native of Ohio, is a graduate of Roanoke College with a degree in political science and criminal justice. 

As an active member of the North Roanoke community for nearly two decades, David Linden has an understanding of how an excellent public school system helps build a strong community.  Linden and his wife, Lisa, have three children who all attended Burlington Elementary, Northside Middle and Northside High.  With more than 20 years of real estate experience, Linden has learned how strong schools are directly related to increasing property values and improving neighborhoods.  Linden has served as President of North Roanoke Recreation Club for 8 years and is a member of the Roanoke County Parks, Recreation and Tourism Advisory Commission. 

He states his goals are to improve the educational experiences for all K-12 students while preparing them for a successful future.  Also, he will look to find ways for all students to become engaged in extra-curricular activities while encouraging parental involvement in the schools and community.  Linden says he wants to ensure all schools in Roanoke County are well positioned to provide a safe and exceptional learning experience for all children.
