David Arthur Gillespie (born 20 December 1957) is an Australian politician. He has been a Nationals member of the Australian House of Representatives, representing the Division of Lyne in New South Wales, since September 2013.
In 2010 he contested the seat of Lyne for the first time, representing the Nationals. His opponent, independent member Rob Oakeshott, defeated him; however, the Nationals received a 10-point swing. Following Oakeshott's retirement at the 2013 federal election, Gillespie contested the seat again and won. This was not an upset; Lyne was still a comfortably safe National seat in a traditional two-party matchup.
