Elton Gallegly Re-Elected to Congress in California’s 24 District


GOP Representative Elton Gallegly and wife, Janice

In a Democrat year, where Barack Obama won California by over 20 points, Republican Representative Elton Gallegly has won re-election to California’s 24th Congressional District.

Rep. Elton Gallegly, R-Simi Valley, beat challenger Marta Jorgensen, a Democrat from Solvang, for the 24th Congressional District seat.

Gallegly has represented the district — which includes part of Santa Barbara County most of Ventura County, except for the coastal areas of Oxnard and Ventura — since 1986. Jorgensen won the right to oppose him with her surprise victory in a three-candidate Democratic primary. With 100 percent of the precincts counted, Gallegly had 57 percent to Jorgensen’s 43 percent.

Congrats to Elton for his election victory. As my Congressman, Flap has always been pleased with the outstanding representation Gallegly has given all of his constituents.

  1. I am the grandparent of a honors student and athlete attending California Lutheran University in his Freshman year. He is doing well and has even been promised the opportunity to do legal internships later on as he is choosing Law as his choice of career. My question: at $40,000 per school year (beginning in May) how does this student obtain the financial aid he so desperately needs? He already works for the school’s Athletic Dept and that money goes straight toward his tuition, but it is too little by atleast half. He is raised by a single parent and I am a retired educator, so money is scarce. Can you help this fine promising young man ??

  2. For one, not everyone can attend Cal Lutheran which is a private and expensive university. He could attend the Cal State Channel Islands University (a California public school) which is less than $5,000 per year.

    There are other schools that may be a better fit.

    Or, there are other Cal Grants and loan programs available if he is financially eligible. Parental guaranteed loans are also an option.

    There is also ROTC.
