To sum up David Maynard, it’s best to use the Boy Scout Oath he took many years ago: “…I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country… to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight…”
Born just outside of the Winder city limits in 1960, David Maynard moved with his family to the City of Winder when he was five years old. The Maynard family has resided in the area since the 1700’s, before Barrow County or Winder existed. David, son of J.W. and Lois Maynard, graduated from Winder-Barrow High School in 1978. Marrying his high school sweetheart, appropriately nicknamed Happy, they chose to remain in Winder and raise their two daughters, Alice and Laura, who also graduated from Winder-Barrow High School.
David was very proud of his daughters as they continued on to college, received their degrees, and began their own families. Alice married Christopher Savage, formerly of Winder. She is a doctor of medicine working on a family practice residency. Christopher is a firefighter in Charleston County, SC. They are currently raising their daughter, Ella, in Mount Pleasant, SC. Laura is married to Josh Payne of Barrow County. She teaches second grade at Statham Elementary School. Josh is an engineer working in Cumming, Georgia. They are currently residing in Barrow County.
David continues to give back to the hometown and community that has given him so much. He has been a thoughtful servant and leader at his church where he has spent his last 40 years as a member. His long history of extensive service with local non-profit organizations, as a leader and a worker, demonstrates David’s willingness to help others at all times.
David Maynard has proudly served Winder and Barrow County. He is a past President of the Winder Kiwanis Club, and past President of the Barrow County Builders Association. He has volunteered as a mentor in our Barrow County Schools. And he has served as a City of Winder Council member at large since 2007.
Along with being a husband, father, and community volunteer, David continues to manage his construction company, established in 1984. David began his career in the building industry by constructing houses for his neighbors and friends to call home. Because of his desire to give his customers the absolute best, David’s business grew. In 2000, he transitioned from residential construction to commercial and industrial. This transition was led in part by the City of Winder and Barrow County’s demand for quality industrial parks and commercial facilities. It came as a result of David’s recognition of the need of high quality facilities to advance Winder’s economic development efforts. Recently David has returned to his roots focusing on residential renovations and remodels but still welcomes and encourages all commercial needs in and around the city.
For those who know David Maynard, they recognize his ability to analyze situations, consider stakeholders, and point his well-defined moral compass in the right direction.
David Maynard is ready to do his best to lead this city, “under God and morally”, in the right direction.
