Justin M. Gallagher was elected in 2015 to the Harbor Creek School Board in Pennsylvania at age 20, while still a college student. He is a rising star in the local Republican Party, winning in a heavily Democrat-leaning suburb. He won the most votes of any of the numerous school board candidates, and is the youngest elected official in Erie County. While working and going to school full-time, he is an officer in the College Republicans at Penn State-Behrend. In April, he was elected as an Alternate Delegate to the Republican National Convention in Pennsylvania’s fifth congressional district.

What was the biggest factor in your success?

I am inspired by forward-thinking, compromise, and positive change for Erie County, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the United States. I believe the United States is the greatest country in the world and was founded on the greatest principles: economic prosperity and freedom for all. I am inspired to continue the legacy of America and ensure every citizen can achieve the American dream.

What advice would you give to other millennials?

Millennials should absolutely be involved in the political process whether it is by voting regularly or advancing ideas. The policies enacted today are going to govern the way we live our lives and the future for our children and grandchildren. Millennials must vote regularly to have a stake in shaping the policies of tomorrow.

Does the GOP have a future and why?

The Republican Party of the future will be a party of limited government and social tolerance. Issue polling proves that an overwhelming majority of millennials agree on issue positions. As our generation grows older and we begin to dominate the political arena, the Republican Party will be the party of America with the ideals of limited government and social tolerance.
