The story of Mr. Gelb’s is a true inspiration. I am of the Jewish faith with a Catholic wife and two college-age children. I believe in the values of American freedoms, and I am focused on creating an effective government. My wife and my family have a background in the military, and I have an undergraduate degree in business with an honors MBA degree. We started our small West Chester business focused on air pollution control to help companies navigate NFPA and EPA regulations.

Mr. Gelb has had the opportunity to work with most of the manufactures in the 8th district, but his vision doesn’t stop there. He plans to improve workers’ pay in Ohio and attract high-tech enterprises to the area. His determination and hard work show us that anything is possible with the right values and mindset. We can all learn from Mr. Gelb’s story to work towards our goals and make significant differences in our communities.

Personal Life


Oh, how time flies. Mr. and Mrs. Gelb have been married for 22 long years and have lived in the charming town of West Chester for more than 16 years. It’s remarkable to see how they have built their family here. David and Annemarie have raised two lovely children in this area: one now an accomplished sophomore honors student at Miami of Ohio, who graduated from Lakota West High School in 2021, and the other, their 17 year old son, who will graduate next spring with plans to attend Miami of Ohio the following year.

Mrs. Gelb’s mother is currently living with them in Ohio, undergoing treatment for multiple myeloma bone marrow cancer. The Gelb’s had to make a tough decision and were offered a transfer to Ohio by David’s corporation, and they felt it was the right decision as they could provide better quality education for their children.

It’s heartwarming to know that both David and Annemarie’s fathers served in the US Air Force as an aircraft mechanic and air traffic controller, respectively. May their precious souls rest in peace.

Religion and Race

Ah, the Gelb family – what a lovely blended family they are! David, with his Ashkenazi and Jewish heritage, and his beloved wife Annemarie Valdez Gelb, who hails from a Spanish Catholic Hispanic background. It’s heartwarming to think about the experiences this family has shared, from attending Church services to Temple ceremonies.

Over the years, they’ve instilled their respective faiths onto their children, passing on important traditions and teachings that will surely continue on through generations. The Gelb family is a beautiful example of how love can bring together different cultures and faiths, creating a rich and vibrant tapestry of traditions that pass down from one generation to the next.
