Meet David Bindelglass

David Bindelglass

I will use my experience in promoting our education system, and my many years of caring for the elderly and those who are in need, to improve Easton’s schools and support our senior citizens. We can find the right mix to maintain our excellent schools, improve our property values, preserve Easton, and take care of those who wish to remain in town as they get older.

My wife, Gloria, and I have lived in Easton for 25 years, where we raised two children, Andrew and Scott. I coached a lot of sports as they grew up and I remain a big fan of football and soccer at Barlow, where both boys played. Once upon a time, I played football in college and rugby in medical school but now am an avid although not very good golfer. We spend a lot of our family time together in Vermont where the boys ski, I hike, and Gloria reads.

I am an orthopedic surgeon and Chief of Orthopedics at Bridgeport Hospital, and in private practice at the Orthopedic Specialty Group. I specialize in hip and knee replacements and have been doing them for the last 27 years at OSG, where I also manage the practice as a member of the Executive Committee. I have served as President of the Medical Staff and a member of the Board of Directors at Bridgeport Hospital and was proud to be named Physician of the Year by the Hospital in 2018.

I graduated from Harvard College with a Bachelor's degree in government and received my medical degree from Columbia University, where I also did my residency in orthopedic surgery.

As a volunteer surgeon with Operation Walk, an organization that sponsors knee and hip surgery in the developing world, I just returned from Cuba on my sixth mission. At home, I was elected to the Easton Board of Education in 2015, where I also currently serve on the ER9 Joint Health Insurance Committee.

We will take care of our schools and our seniors, and safeguard the unique character of our town while seeking alternative revenue sources that will not burden the individuals who call Easton home.
