Trout & Gallagher to Run in 5th Legislative District

April 12, 2010

Pair plan to take the fight to Camden Political Machine

Woodbury – Vowing to take the fight to the entrenched Camden Political Machine, Republicans Harry Trout and Barbara Gallagher have filed to run for State Senate and State Assembly, respectively, on a platform of smaller government, less spending and lower property taxes, the pair announced today.

          “Our State’s economy is in shambles and it’s nearly impossible for working class families and seniors on a fixed income to make ends meet anymore,” said Trout, a Woodbury Councilman and South Jersey native.  “I’m running because we need representatives in Trenton who will serve the taxpayers they represent, not an entrenched political machine that is beholden to special interests and party bosses.”

          “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result – this district has elected Democrats for years without real opposition and look where it’s gotten us,” said Gallagher, a Registered Nurse and Clinical Research Manager at Thomas Jefferson University.  “The entrenched Democrats consider this district “safe” and will continue to take it for granted politically.  Sadly, that same attitude has permeated into their governing and it’s why Camden City and the surrounding areas are struggling so badly under their so-called leadership.”

          Trout is currently employed by J&D’s Discount Liquor Gallery in Woodbury as wine consultant/manager.  He has volunteered his time as a t-ball and
softball coach with the Woodbury Little League, and as a coach for boys and
girls soccer teams with the Woodbury Soccer Club.  He served as Cub Master, Assistant Cub Master and Pack Committee Chairman for Cub Scout Pack 7 at St Stephen’s Lutheran Church, Scout Master for BSA Troop 7, also at St. Stephen’s, and as Assistant Scoutmaster of BSA Troop 74 at Kemble Memorial United Methodist Church.  He was married 27 years before his wife Vicky, passed away from cancer in 2008. He has three children.

          Gallagher has lived in the Steeplechase section of Deptford for seven years and is President of the Deptford Republican Club.  She is a member of Most Holy Redeemer Parish and Chairperson of the Friends of Most Holy Redeemer.  Gallagher also serves as a Board Member for Philadelphia FIGHT, an AIDS service organization.  She is married to husband Craig.
