Weir: Vincent Gallo running for Congress in 26th District

With the March 1st Republican Primary looming, several candidates are prepared to run for their party’s nomination. Among them is Vincent Gallo, running for Congress in the 26thDistrict. He came over for an interview to tell viewers about himself, what he stands for, and why he’s challenging 10-term incumbent Dr. Michael Burgess.

Mr. Gallo sent a short biography below, along with his campaign website: Gallo For Congress

“Vince was raised on small cattle ranch in East Texas near the town of Big Sandy, Texas. Upon graduating, he attended the UNT in Denton and completed his degree in Business Administration in 1984. He intended to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a USAF fighter pilot, but his eyes did not allow for that. For a short time after graduating, Vince worked as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch in Midland, Texas. The financial services business was interesting and highly educational, but not a good fit. Ultimately, he transitioned to something closer to military service, police work.

“Vince served his community for 12 years as a Carrollton police officer for the City of Carrollton, a Dallas suburb. During this time his responsibilities included working as a patrol officer, patrol sergeant, Criminal investigative sergeant, and a tactical team member and supervisor. He received numerous citizen commendations for excellent service. In 2001, Vince left policing to start his own construction company and has been engaged in light commercial and residential construction ever since.

“He is fiercely patriotic and has had enough of weak leadership on the national level of the Republican Party. He is a proud supporter of President Donald Trump and is “All In” regarding America First policies. He has been married to his wonderful wife Cindy for 37 years, and they have four adult children.”
