David Cloutier, Board Director
Term Expires 2019
David Cloutier has been on the Common Market board since 2008, and started his fifth year as Board President in 2014. He teaches ethics at Mount St. Mary’s University, a job which brought him to Frederick County in 2006 and which also drives his passion for food co-ops and local, just, and sustainable food economies! He is always so inspired that we have such a wonderful store here in Frederick, having lived for many years in places without it. He is especially interested in fostering the Board’s long-term thinking about the future of the co-op, and what we can do to enhance our ability to ensure justice toward all the people within the “food chain,” and to the Earth on which we all ultimately depend. He is also an advocate for the joys of tempeh. He is a graduate of Carleton College and Duke University (don’t hold that against him!), and was born and raised on the northwest side of Chicago. In his all-too-meager spare time, he enjoys singing in various groups around Frederick, running in Baker Park, and keeping up with his native (Cubs) and adopted (Twins) baseball teams.
