David Lehman, MPA

Program Manager
State of Louisiana, ConnectLA


David Lehman specializes in economic, fiscal and policy issues. He has a master's in public administration from LSU where he served as a Governor's Fellow in Economic Development and supported his professors with their economic research. As an undergraduate, he earned upper division honors while studying economics from the Ogden Honors College.

Before joining ConnectLA, Lehman spent two years working for the Louisiana Legislature as a budget analyst creating data visualizations for lawmakers and focusing on the $500 million annual operating budgets for the workforce, economic development and tourism departments. Additionally, he oversaw the tracking of American Rescue Plan Act dollars and the $800 million replenishment of the unemployment insurance trust fund. This skill set proves valuable for ConnectLA as the state administers about $1 billion in broadband funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law over the next five years.

Lehman is excited to utilize broadband and increase economic, educational and telehealth opportunities for all Louisianians. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling, reading and rooting for Brazil's national soccer team.
