About Dave Trott

Dave Trott Biography

A lifelong resident of Southeast Michigan, Dave Trott is committed to serving the citizens of Michigan’s 11th District.

Dave is not a career Washington politician—instead, he spent his life raising his family and growing his family business in Southeast Michigan. As a business owner, Dave learned what it takes to make tough decisions and balance a budget. Through his career in business, Dave strengthened his dedication to conservative principles and beliefs.

As Southeast Michigan’s voice in Congress, Dave has fought for common-sense conservative solutions to our nation’s problems, like balancing the budget, ending Washington’s wasteful spending, and giving more power back to our local communities. Dave believes we must get Washington out of the way and give Michigan families and small businesses the opportunity to get our nation back on track.

At the same time, Dave has been Michigan’s leading voice on foreign affairs and has fought for strengthening our national security to protect Michigan families and defeat the terrorist networks that threaten the nation.

Dave earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and his Juris Doctor from Duke University. Dave and his wife, Kappy, live in Birmingham. They have three children.
