David Hughes was born and raised in Laconia and Center Harbor. After graduating from Inter-Lakes High School, David attended the Florida Institute of Technology, Canaan College, and Windham College in Putney Vermont, where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy, with minors in History and Math. Growing up, he always learned to “help thy neighbor” as this was a family ethic and, in 1975, David began his career in Social Work for the State of New Hampshire, advancing to Adult Protective Social Worker III in the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services, retiring in April 2011. David served as a Selectman for the Town of Center Harbor from 2011-2014 and has been a Firefighter/EMT for the Center Harbor Fire Department since 2004. David has worked with various agencies throughout Belknap, Carroll, and Grafton Counties. With good working relationships and experiences with various local Caregiver agencies, it was inevitable that a relationship with Interlakes Community Caregivers developed. David has served previously on the Board and looks forward to continued service. David has four adult children and three grandchildren all living in New Hampshire.
