Councilor David Patrick has called Tulsa home for 60 years. He was elected in 2011 for the fifth time as City Councilor of District 3.

Growing up, David Patrick attended Tulsa Public Schools. After graduating from Will Rogers High School, he went on to receive multiple automotive certifications. Councilor Patrick now runs his family's business, Patrick Auto Service, which has been at the same location in District 3 since 1950. He and his brother bought the business from their parents in 1975. He owns a management company, Patrick Enterprises, which owns a number of commercial and residential properties. Councilor Patrick also owns a wheat farm in Colorado.

Patrick said his greatest accomplishment is his family. He has been married to his wife, Dannette, for 41 years. The couple has two adult children, Crista and David. Both still live in Tulsa and his son serves as a Tulsa firefighter. Councilor Patrick and his wife have a total of four grandchildren.  He said quality time with his family is one of his favorite pastimes.

Patrick's interest in community stemmed from his involvement on the Maxwell Community Council in the 1980s. He is currently a member of the Dawson Neighborhood Association. Patrick was first elected to the Tulsa City Council in 1996 and was re-elected in 1998 for a partial term. In 2002, he served another 2 year term. He was re-elected in 2008 and again for his current term in 2011.

Patrick describes himself as an "average guy." He is a car and motorcycle enthusiast, which he credits to his line of work.

Councilor Patrick said he loves Tulsa and is happy to be back in office. "I'm proud of what I've done in the past as far as representing my City and my community," Patrick said.
