David Ross "Dave" Rugendyke (born 3 April 1953) is an Australian politician and was a member of the Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly elected to the multi-member of Ginninderra for the Osborne Independent Group. Rugendyke was elected on the Osborne Independents ticket at the 1998 general election but sat as an independent in the Assembly. He sought re-election at the 2001 general election on his own ticket, but was unsuccessful.
Prior to Rugendyke entering politics, he was a police officer. Together with Osborne, Rugendyke entered politics on a social justice and welfare platform, not the anti-gay marriage and pro-life platform of his running mate - Osborne. Rugendyke is best known for the part he played in ousting Kate Carnell, then Chief Minister, for failing to properly appropriate funds for the Bruce Stadium construction.
