Name: Peter Gallego
Member since: 2016
I am currently a DA member living abroad in my motherland of Spain. I am originally from Miami, Florida, USA. I am a former hostel manager, working in the Americas, Australia, Asia, now Europe. I speak English and 3 romance languages. I am a political advocate of equity, social justice (=) in all realms. I have 29 years in management, and aspire to make this DPCA position, if elected, a transition to hold local office in the near future, upon return home to the U.S. I have lived abroad for 9 years, and have traveled extensively. I would like to use my leadership, political experience to make a major difference in promoting our organization from the region to an international level. If elected, I will work hard to make the agenda of DA a reality with the issues being strongly heard, as it pertains to our regions spanning 3 continents, bring it across the globe with much vested effective leadership over the next 2 years.
Describe your volunteer work with DA and cite your greatest DA accomplishment.
In the last 7 years I have been a part of DA, I have encouraged others in our organization to vote in every election cycle. I have also worked locally with other fellow DAs in grassroots efforts to get out the vote, to advocate for what the DA agenda has been in my beloved country of residence Spain. I have been active, would like to take that leadership now to an international level, in promoting the agenda of DA for the better good of our beloved party.
Why are you running for this office?
I am running for several DA International Offices, because I would like to work in leading the effort of the party's agenda forward across the world, in assuring we will fully support our current democratic control in Congress, White House throughout the next 2 years. I would like all eligible voters in the entire organization to continue to support what the party wants to accomplish under the Biden-Harris administration, to help bring more advocacy to DA voters in assuring we stand strong against GOP efforts to gain control again in 2024. If elected, will work hard with other members, officers around the world, we will find common ground to establish a better organization for everyone who is a Democrat living abroad. Yes we can! Si se puede!
How will your skill sets and experience contribute to DA’s success?
Should you be elected, are there any DA organizational or practical issues (not political goals) that you would like to address?
How can Democrats Abroad best raise our profile among American voters abroad and better work to elect Democrats?
