Ryan Gallagher

Greetings my name is Ryan Gallagher I am an entrepreneur and a recent two time college graduate with aspirations of becoming a lawyer in the near future. I have been a resident of Dekalb county, specifically lithonia for over 22 years and I absolutely love my community and I want to see it prosper. I attended Arabia Mountain High school where I was blessed to receive the opportunity of not only obtaining my High School diploma but also an Associates degree in Network Administration. Obtaining a specialized skill and degree at an early age helped me learn the importance of education.

I continued my studies at the world renowned historically black college Texas Southern University where I majored in Political Science with a dual minor in Spanish and computer science. There I would learn about the building blocks of government and what it means to come together as a society to promote the greater good. Politics has always been a passion of mine as well as helping the community to be the best they can be. Words can not express how happy I am to potentially be in a situation where I can impact and help others that I would not have been able to reach before.

If I were so fortunate to be elected as a Stonecrest City councilmen I swear to uphold the laws of our city charter and constitution. I want to promote new business moving inside the city to generate more revenue and stimulate growth inside our economy. I will support our local schools and hope to generate new youth programs to enrich our residences' lives. I will work to ensure that our local government has positive effects on our quality of life and is transparent with the citizens of stonecrest. With your help I hope to make Stonecrest the greatest city in America!
