Biography

As Executive Director of Save The Bay since 1998, David Lewis has been San Francisco Bay's top advocate for more than a decade. Under his leadership, Save The Bay stopped San Francisco International Airport's plan to pave more of the Bay for runways, and has taken on industry giants Cargill Inc., the American Chemistry Council, and serious Bay polluters. David has also testified before Congress on oil spill prevention and restoring Bay wetlands to combat the impacts of climate change. David was born and raised in the Bay Area, and prior to joining Save The Bay, he devoted 14 years to work for nuclear arms control in Washington, D.C., including in the U.S. Senate, and also worked on election campaigns across the country. He holds a B.A. in Politics and American Studies from Princeton University and is still trying to catch up to his daughters on the ski slopes.
