Campaign #77: Teresa Gallegos for Arkansas State Senate District 16
All aboard to Arkansas!
Our first campaign in Arkansas is for Teresa Gallegos and her run for State Senate.
Teresa put roots down in Russellville, Arkansas with her husband in 2015. Growing up in rural Virginia, she was raised in a minimum wage, single-parent household that relied on Medicaid, free school lunches, and SNAP benefits to make ends meet.
Teresa earned an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration from Virginia Western Community College in Roanoke, Virginia. She continued her education at Virginia Tech, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management from the Pamplin College of Business. Every day, Teresa strives to live by the Virginia Tech motto: Ut Prosim (that I may serve).
Passionate about healthy, local food and ending childhood hunger, Teresa serves as a Board Member for Russellville Community Market and volunteer at River Valley Food 4 Kids. Her friends often see her out registering voters and organizing local events as Vice Chair of the Democratic Party of Pope County.
Another thing of note is that when Teresa wrote to her Congressman about her concern over corporate profiteering from student loans, his response shamed her for taking out loans herself. Teresa has pointed to this as the moment she realized people like us need to start running for office.
Thanks for helping boost her candidacy!
