Science, Technology and Energy

David  was trained at the MIT Sloan School for a wide variety of strategic technology planning and leadership positions, including management of large corporate and national laboratories. David has:

  • A Ph.D. in Management of Technological Innovation
  • 8 years on the Board of Directors of an international industry association
  • Over forty years of technology experience, including fourteen years as a high-tech entrepreneur and small business owner
  • Two years experience as a US diplomat to a UN agency in Geneva, the International Telecommunications Union

This experience gives David both the domestic and international perspective needed to help NH develop a strategic plan for next-generation initiatives in science, technology and energy. I support renewal energy, supporting more use of more hydroelectric power and "rooftop solar" energy panels. We need to create high quality JOBS to compete on the world stage. We MUST stop the “flat spin” death-spiral our economy is in. We suffer from an ever-aging population, an exodus of high-tech jobs, and departure of our trained young citizens at an alarming rate. We are in danger of losing our New Hampshire Advantage!

Public Education - "Education is the Foundation of Liberty"

David has served on the Nashua School Board since his election in 2009, as one of nine at-large Board of Education members, and has demonstrated his ability to lead innovative reform in the Nashua Schools, leveraging his Ph.D. in Management of Innovation from the MIT Sloan School to help develop a strategic vision for innovative change. He is well known for his bi-partisan approach to problem solving without sacrificing conservative principles. As Chairman of Curriculum and Evaluation, he works closely with teachers, administration and other elected officials to help reform public school curriculum in math, science and technology. .He is aware of the disastrous effects of an overly rapid adoption of Common Core State Standards, and fought both at State and Local levels to delay the hurried pace of implementing the new Standards. He also opposes excessive testing, and believes academic tests should test academics, NOT psychometrics and "grit" as the Smarter Balanced Assessments do.

Military Veteran

David enlisted in 1971:

  • Commissioned in 1975
  • Trained in Combat Engineering, Atomic Demolitions, Special Weapons and Intelligence
  • Served five years active duty, most of it deployed to West Germany. Served as Combat Engineer platoon leader, ASA Liaison, and S-2 (Chief of Intelligence) of 4th Brigade, 4th Infantry in Wiesbaden FRG
  • Resigned active duty in 1982
  • Continues to serve in the US Air Force Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol) as volunteer aircrew, Ground Team Leader, Mission Staff and member of Chaplains Service
  • On 9/11, served as volunteer mission staff at FEMA-1 during first 3 days as a member of the Federal Incident Command Staff helping to coordinate Federal response to the Greater New York Area emergency response.

Conservative - Member of NH GOP State Committee

David has been a registered Republican voter for 40 years:

  • Life member Republican National Committee (RNC)
  • Twice awarded RNC Ronald Reagan Medal
  • Member of NH GOP State Committee since 2008
  • Elected as GOP Convention Delegate for Nashua Ward 5 since 2008.
  • A-rated by NH Right to Work
  • Original TEA Party activist - Attended first TEA Party Rally
  • Signed several limited government Tax Pledges.
  • Constitutional conservative
  • Endorsed by non-partisan NH Liberty Alliance
  • Rated A+ by NH Families for Education
  • Endowment Member of the National Rifle Association
  • Endorsed in 2016 General Election by NRA, NH Firearms Coalition
Pro-Life Christian

Life begins at the moment of conception, and ends at natural death. Life and Love are both gifts from God. David is strongly pro-life:

  • Participated in pro-life marches & prayer vigils
  • Testified to NH Legislature to restore Parental Notification and defund abortion
  • Secular member Discalced Carmelite Order (OCDS)
  • Past Grand Knight of Knights of Columbus Council 12311
  • Catechist and Eucharistic Minister at St. Joseph the Worker Parish, Nashua


David wants to preserve our natural resources but does not support RGGI:

  • Supports public transportation
  • Member of the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC)
  • Supports increasing use of hydroelectric power and "rooftop solar" energy panels.


Applied Math Test
My son sent me this in an email :)

All of our children attended Nashua schools.
Top L to R: Allen, Barbara, Susan, Amanda. Bottom: Dave, Tommie.

About Me:
Dear Friends: My name is David Murotake. I am a fiscal conservative and have lived in Nashua since 1982. I'm the son and grandson of legal immigrants from Japan who settled in Hawaii. I'm a "Nisei", a second-generation Japanese American born in Hawaii in 1954. Since my first language was Japanese, I'm also what the school systems call an "ESL" - an "English as a Second Language" speaker. I was also a "low socio-economic status" (Low SES) child who grew up in Kalihi-kai in Hawaii (Dog the Bounty Hunter's home "hood").

Parent, Volunteer and Home School Teacher: My wife Tommie and I moved to Nashua in 1982 after we both served in the US Army. We've raised four children in Nashua and sent them through the local school system. I ran a registered Nashua home school for one of my children, and both of us were registered volunteers with Nashua schools. My teaching experience includes the positions of Instructor in psychology at the MIT Sloan School, senior teaching assistant for Electronics Laboratory at MIT, Sunday School teacher for over 12 years at St. Joseph parish (K-8), Character Development Instructor in the Civil Air Patrol, and many years of working with youth as a registered Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Girl Scout leader in Packs and Troops from Nashua Wards 4, 5 and 8.

Pledge: Oppose any and all new taxes
David Murotake signed ATR Taxpayer Protection Pledge

A Scholar: I graduated as Valedictorian of Immaculata High School Class of 1971. I attended MIT on a full academic scholarship, converting an Academy appointment (my choice of Westpoint, Annapolis or Air Force Academy) into a 4-year ROTC scholarship to the college of my choice. I graduated with three degrees (SB, SB, SM) in 1977. After five years in the Army, I returned to civilian life in 1982 and obtained my Ph.D. in 1990 from the MIT Sloan School on a fully funded doctoral program paid for by RCA. I have gone back to school, and am working for the M.Ed. degree program, majoring in Curriculum and Instruction at Rivier College .

A Veteran: I come from a proud 3-generation military family. I'm an Army Veteran and served with the Combat Engineers and Army Security Agency. I'm the son of a retired Army Chief Warrant Officer with two Vietnam combat tours, and the father of a Navy Corpsman back from his third deployment in the Global War on Terror supporting our Marines.


Pledge: Limit budget growth to rate of inflation
David Murotake has taken the NH Advantage pledge

A Fiscal Conservative:  I believe in Limited Government, support Nashua's Tax Cap, and have signed the New Hampshire Advantage pledge, the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers (CNHT) Taxpayer Pledge, and the New Hampshire Taxpayer Pledge. I do not support broad based taxes, such as income taxes or sales taxes, to support any increase in the size of Government - including our public schools. I also believe we need to enhance the education our children receive, making Nashua a more attractive place for people to move to. This in turn, enhances the value of our City's real estate and increasing revenues into our City and State educational trust funds. However, the taxpayer supports many programs in our schools which are NOT mandated by State or Federal laws and regulations - programs like competitive sports in the high schools and middle schools, and activities like year book, school play, debate and others which are supported by the taxpayer. To save these activities in the face of certain budget cuts, we will need to institute an activity program - called "pay to play" in many of the cities which have adopted this type of fee in their schools...

A Small Business Owner: I started SCA Technica, Inc (www.scatechnica.com), a Nashua based Small Business in 2002. We've won seven competitive US Government R&D contracts since our start-up, sold our first patent in 2007, and granted our first two US Patents in July 2008 and February 2009.

Pledge: Fight sales, income, broad-based taxes
David Murotake has taken the CNHT pledge

As the owner of a high-tech startup company and a 27-year resident of Nashua, I understand well the issues facing education K-12 in this city, and the challenges that face it. I am also experienced in the fiscal governance and management of non-profit organizations. I studied Fiscal Control of Non-Profit Organizations at USC's graduate school, and have served as a member of the Board of Directors of an international non-profit industry association (www.sdrforum.org) for over 6 years. I will do my best to use my professional management and educational experience to help Nashua's school system, the parents, and taxpayers of Nashua face and overcome our challenges. As a member of the School Board I will serve to improve the quality and safety of our children's educations, while keeping taxes as low as possible.

A Christian Volunteer! I've been an active public service volunteer and environmental activist since my high school days. I also have extensive volunteer experience in Nashua.  I'm a Catechist and Eucharistic Minister at St. Joseph the Worker parish in Nashua Ward 5, and have taught Sunday School there for over a dozen years. I'm a Secular Carmelite (OCDS) in the St. Therese community in Nashua. I'm also a Past Grand Knight of Council 12311, Knights of Columbus at St. Joseph the Worker parish. I've also served for many years as a "cheerleader dad" (the male version of "soccer mom") with my three daughters...

Small Brown Scapular
David Murotake is in formation for OCDS

My ministry extends to the Chaplain's Service of the Civil Air Patrol - the civilian auxiliary of the US Air Force - where I serve as a Character Development Instructor (an assistant to Chaplains). I am a CAP First Responder, a FEMA ICS-300 qualified Ground Branch Director, ground team leader, air search and a rated Senior Mission Observer for air search and rescue. I'm also a certified Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) peer for individuals and groups. During the 9-11 Crisis, I was one of the first CAP volunteers activated to assist Federal resources manning the FEMA-1 Command Post, coordinating disaster relief operations for the New York metropolitan area and New England. I lived at FEMA-1 for the next 72 hours helping FEMA and other agencies in trying to cope with the Twin Towers disaster.This surprised me, as I expected to be aircrew in a CAP aircraft flying reconnaissance missions over the Twin Towers...In addition, I am trained up through ICS-300 in the Incident Command System, and have specialized training in incident command staff in response to terrorist/WMD situations in addition to normal emergency services.
A Scout Leader, I'm a past Assistant Scoutmaster and Merit Badge Counselor, Boy Scout Troop 410 at Immaculate Conception Church in Nashua Ward 8. I'm a former Pack committee chair (Cub Scout Pack 255 in Ward 4) and former Girl Scout co-leader (several Troops in Wards 4, 5), I served as a registered volunteer Math tutor at Nashua high school for two years and taught a registered Nashua Home School for two years. Many years ago - in Wiesbaden Air Base, Germany, a community with over 5,000 families - I served as a community United Way chairman for two years. I am also very active in my industry doing "pro-bono" work - having founded and chaired over half a dozen international working groups and special interest groups in the field of software defined radio (SDR). I am a past vice-chair of the SDR Forum Technical Committee, and immediate past chair of its Markets Committee. In October 2008 I was re-elected to a sixth term as a member of its Board of Directors, currently representing Small Company members.

JFK - Inaugural Address - YouTube Video
David Murotake did what JFK wanted, volunteering for worthy causes.

My Favorite Presidents

President John F. Kennedy: He inspired me as a young child. I wept when he was assasinated. He was a Veteran and a War Hero, a capable Commander in Chief, but a man of Vision and Peace. JFK brought CHANGE as only a war hero and visionary commander-in-chief can. He re-structured the US Military, moving it from a "strategic nuclear force" to a mixed force that could be used in counter-insurgencies and today's Global War on Terror. He established the Green Berets - predecessor of today's Special Operations forces. He believed in volunteerism and started the Peace Corps. He challenged us. JFK was a Life Member of the NRA, and a staunch defender of the Constitution and our Second Amendment Rights! If any man today claims to be like JFK, he should only look back on history and ask, "In what way am I like that man?" JFK left very big shoes to fill. So, too did his brother Robert Kennedy, brutally murdered while he was the Democratic front-runner...


Ronald Reagan - Inaugural Address - YouTube Video
My favorite photo & quotations of President Reagan

President Ronald Reagan: He is another one of my two favorite Presidents. He was also one of my two Commanders in Chief, and one that every soldier I knew trusted to lead us into just causes. More than any other President, his policies brought about the end of the Cold War. The policy is neatly summed up by his motto: "Peace Through Strength". As a moderate and a "fusionist", Ronald Reagan was villified by both the Right and the Left. But the vast majority of the American people (including me) loved him, and he united a divided nation. Ronald Reagan even had a strong base of support in the Democratic Party. Like JFK, Reagan was a NRA member and staunch Second Amendment defender.

"The Constitution does not say Government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says `the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.`" - President Ronald Reagan.

"No group does more to promote gun safety and respect for the laws of this land than the NRA, and I thank you. Still, we've both heard the charges that supporting gun owners' rights encourages a violent, shoot-em-up society. Don't they understand that most violent crimes are not committed by decent, lawabiding citizens, they're committed by career criminals? Hard-core criminals use guns, and locking them up and throwing away the key is the best gun control law we could ever have." - President Ronald Reagan

My Education
 I studied as hard as I could in school and graduated as the Valedictorian of Immaculata High School in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1971. I won a scholarship which gave me my choice of admission into Westpoint Military Academy, Annapolis Naval Academy, or the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Instead, I converted my scholarship into a full ROTC Scholarship at MIT, where I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army in 1975. Later, after I completed my Army active duty assignment, the RCA Corporation awarded me a fully funded Ph.D. Program to the school of my choice. Offered admissions by the MIT Sloan School of Management and Harvard's JFK School of Government, I chose to return to MIT, using my GI Bill and other Veterans benefits to help out with raising my family while attending school.

Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering. Minor: Political Science.
Bachelor of Science, English Literature & Creative Writing. Minor: Theoretical Math
Master of Science: Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
Doctor of Philosophy: Management of Technological Innovation (MIT Sloan School)
I am currently enrolled in the M.Ed. program at Rivier College, majoring in Curriculum and Instruction...
