David Monlux was born in OK HD 91 and has maintained residence in the district his whole life. During Kindergarten he had his first political sparks. He went with his parents on a business trip to Washington DC and got to tour the White House. Later that same year, he came home late one night (for a kindergartner) to find his dad watching a Presidential Debate between Al Gore & George W. Bush. The effects were unknown at the time, but those two events combined played a major subconscious role in developing his political passion which continues to this day.
For 1st-8th Grade he went to St. John's Episcopal School in OKC. During 4th grade he won his first major (at the time) political election & became the 4th Grade Class rep on the Student Council. In 6th Grade David was the assistant business manager for the yearbook, a Division 3 Award Recipient at the Central Oklahoma Regional Science & Engineering Fair while placing 2nd at the PPARTS Festival in the Acrylic Division in addition to hosting an exchange student from South Korea for a month. In 7th grade he got to tour the National Weather Service in Norman, OK before letting out for Summer to volunteer 116 hours at Integris Baptist Medical Center. In 8th Grade David Monlux became the Student Council President and graduated from St. John's in May of 2009. That Summer he volunteered 49 hours at Baptist and took an Oklahoma History on the Road Course as his first High School Class before the Fall began.
During High School Monlux took 8 classes each Semester, was a Student Council Rep of his Class for 3 of his 4 years, spent 2 years on the Football Team and all 4 years on the Tennis Team. David scored above the College Readiness Benchmark ACT in English & Reading. In addition he performed countless hours of Community Service, was awarded the President's Volunteer Service Award, was part of YLX Youth Leadership Exchange XVI & served as a Page to State Representatives Mike Reynolds & Paul Wesselhoft during his Junior & Senior Year.

Photos above/below do NOT represent a political endorsement or approval of any kind on any/all of my political views/pursuits. In fact I'm sure many of these people would disagree with some/all of my policies and be more than happy to point out (in their mind) where I'm wrong. That is OK with me. I believe in civil discourse and working across the aisle to bridge the divide instead of having the extreme partisanship that exist today.
During College David took classes at Rose State, Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC), OSU-OKC, UPAEP (located in Puebla Mexico) and the University of Oklahoma (OU). He received 3 total Associate Degrees (1 from each) from Rose, OCCC & OSU. During the Spring 2020 Semester he is finishing up some final classes at OU for multiple Bachelor Degrees and Minors (all different subjects than the Associates). His political involvement includes being part of the "Syria Not Our War" movement led by Paul Wesselhoft, joining Paul Wesselhoft in fighting to return the "Shepherdess Bringing in Sheep" to its rightful owner, running for OK HD 91 in the 2014 GOP Primary as the youngest candidate in the history of the state, working on Tom Cole's 2016 Primary Campaign and Paul Rosino's OK SD 45 Primary Campaign in 2017. Also from Feb 2015-Dec 2016 he was Precinct 50 Vice Chair for the Cleveland County GOP and part of the Platform Committee for the 2016 Cleveland County GOP Convention. He was also Secretary of the Cleveland County Young Republicans from Aug 2015-Dec 2016. In addition David has been a Student Parking Appeals Justice as part of OU's Student Government Association (SGA)Judicial Branch since May 2016 and has represented Dan Williams, Ryan Echols and Joshua Shumway in SGA court cases while also bringing forward multiple separate lawsuits against SGA Executive Branch members including his 2017 pursuit over the mishandling of students seats to the Regents Board for the University President Search Selection Committee. In 2016 he lobbied for Minors in Brazilian, Mexican and Italian Studies at OU which led to the creation of the Certificate in Global Engagement being open to all students. He has also participated in the OU Model Arab League, studied abroad in Cuba, Greece, Mexico, Peru and Turkey. In regards to work experience Monlux worked for Sitel before being reduced in force on Dec 31st, 2019. He has since taken a job with Commercial Insurance. Net for the Spring 2020 semester to have flexibility around class scheduling and to be available to answer questions to the people of OK HD 91.
