I’m honored to have received the endorsement of the Greater Orlando Builders Association. OCPS is now the ninth largest school district in the nation and the fourth largest in Florida, and we’re growing by approximately 5,000 additional students each year. That means we’re partnering with the building community not just to build new schools but also to renovate old ones and to ensure we continue to open alternate doors for interested students through career and technical education opportunities. Volunteering my time to ensure all students have the resources and tools they need to succeed has been one of my life’s greatest honors, and I look forward to continuing that work as District 1’s next School Board Member.  See the video here.

These qualities are absolutely essential in a school board member. Angie will always fight for what is right for the students, teachers, and staff of Orange County Public Schools.

“For three long years, we fought for daily recess for elementary school students – for our own kids, for your kids, for ALL kids. Angie Gallo joined us early on, stood by our side through thick and thin and continues to advocate on recess with us even today. We can say with 100% certainty that we would not have a recess mandate without Angie. Yes, this was a grassroots effort led by regular moms, but we needed guidance, advice, cheerleading, experience and someone to pound the pavement for our kids when we couldn’t be in Tallahassee. Angie was that person, that MOM. She has served our children well and we know she will continue to do so when she is elected to the school board. Orange County needs Angie Gallo. We are excited she is running for school board and are so proud to be supporting her candidacy. She will fight hard each day for students, parents, and teachers of District 1, and for EVERY student, parent and teacher across OCPS and throughout the State of Florida. She always has, and we know she always will.”
– Angela Browning, Recess Mom

“It would be hard to imagine a better school board member than Angie Gallo.  Angie has worked tirelessly for the last 15 years both inside and outside the classroom.  Probably what is most impressive to me is that most of her time was spent lobbying to improve education for all students – not just her own children.  I believe that’s a rare quality as most people get involved in education when something affects their own children.  I’ve seen Angie go to bat to make things better for children all over our state.  She is also on top of what teachers need and understands the relationship between feeling valued and performance.  Angie Gallo is EXACTLY what the Orange County School Board needs – someone who is both accountable and accessible.”
– Kellyann Rohr, Guidance Counselor, Florida Virtual School

“I met Angie in 2009 when her youngest daughter entered middle school. From the very beginning, she made a huge impact on our school. She was She was very involved in the PTSA and the SAC and helped create the Christmas shop, brought back school dances so kids had a safe place to hang out, and spent countless hours raising money to clean up our school.  She is a hard worker who will always put the students first and understands the need to retain excellent teachers.  Angie Gallo is who we need representing us in District 1 for Orange County School Board.”

– Debbie Yeasted, OCPS Guidance Counselor
