David A. Berger was selected to fill the remaining term of the vacant fire commissioner position, which was created by the resignation of Commissioner Fossos.
David A. Berger joined the Board of the Multi-Service Center in 2014, in order to further his strong interest in helping people in need of housing, jobs, and other assistance provided by MSC to achieve or regain their self-sufficiency. He currently also serves on the city of Federal Way Parks and Recreation Commission and formerly served on the Sound Transit Citizen Oversight Panel. Mr. Berger has been a member of Rotary International for over 30 years, and his previous volunteer leadership included serving on local boards of several Rotary clubs, the American Heart Association, and Boy Scouts of America. Prior to retiring in 2010, he was a city manager, assistant city manager or general manager in several California cities, special districts to include a fire district and city fire departments. He also served as San Francisco Bay Area regional vice president/business manager for the country’s largest civil engineering/environmental services firm. During his 35-year career, Mr. Berger led the conversion of two former military bases to civilian use, and oversaw “mega” projects in the transportation infrastructure, environmental clean-up and water supply fields. He and his wife, Donna of 40 years, are pleased their Federal Way home allows them to frequently see their two married daughters and two small grandchildren who live in the Puget Sound region.
