A lifelong resident of Frewsburg, Davis is employed by Frewsburg Central School as a fourth grade teacher and has been an educator/public servant for more than 20 years. In addition to his duties as a teacher, Davis has been in several leadership positions, serving as a grade level chair and on the district’s Liaison Committee.

He has been married to his wife Karen (Nelson) Davis for 33 years, and they have three adult children: Brian, Emily Knopp, and Megan.

On the legislature, Davis serves on the Administrative Services Committee and also attends the local board meetings in Carroll, Kiantone and Poland. He then shares information from the prior legislature meeting and gives residents the opportunity to discuss questions or issues. When concerns about roads were mentioned, Davis said he personally met with and toured the Public Facilities department with Brad Bentley, county public facilities director. An EMS communications safety concern brought discussion with and action from Sheriff Jim Quattrone, and a lighting issue on local towers was resolved so that astronomy enthusiasts could view the night skies with less light pollution. Davis said those are among the issues he has worked on.
