Angie Gallo has received the endorsement of the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association for her bid to be elected to the Orange County School Board in District 1, her campaign announced Wednesday.

Gallo is a public education advocate who has served on multiple Orange County School Board committees and currently is the legislative chair for the Florida Parent Teacher Association.

“As our endorsee, we believe that Angie shares our goals to fight to strengthen public schools, improve employees’ working conditions and salaries, and work to make sure we have the tools and resources needed to ensure student success,” Orange County CTA President Wendy Dormal stated in a news release issued by Gallo’s campaign.

Gallo, of Orlando, faces Heather Traynham and Terry Rooth, both of Winter Park, in the contest for the District 1 seat representing far-east Orange County. Incumbent Joie Cadle is not seeking re-election.

“I have worked with Wendy and the Orange County CTA for many years on education,” Gallo stated in the release. “We have fought long and hard together to improve education and I am honored to receive their endorsement. It personally means a lot when others place confidence in my abilities to advocate for education for our children.”
