Russell Gallo, President of the Brooklyn Young Republicans, is running for State Assembly in the same neighborhoods that Congressman Bob Turner and State Senator David Storobin.
Serving this nation for over 16 years, Russell currently holds the rank of First Sergeant in the New York Army National Guard as part of the First Battalion, 258th Field Artillery Regiment. While on active duty with the U.S. Army, Russell served as a Military Police Officer from 2004 to 2005 during Operation: Iraqi Freedom (where he openly engaged terrorists and insurgents, earning a Combat Action Badge), stood guard at Ground Zero as part of Operation: Noble Eagle in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001 and was part of the National Guard’s Counter-Narcoterrorism Task Force. Since 2007, Russell also serves our city as an officer with MTA Bridges and Tunnels. He was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 2009.
Explaining his candidacy for the State Assembly to a Brooklyn Tea Party crowd covered by Politicker, Mr. Gallo stressed again that neither incumbent Democrat Steve Cymbrowitz, nor his primary opponent Ben Akselrod, would come close to him in terms of conservatism.
“Both of my Democratic opponents are trying to become more conservative than the other, neither of them will be more conservative I,” he added.
