Rochelle will be one of the first two LGBTQ Latinas elected to the Colorado State House
Rochelle Galindo was born and raised in Greeley, Colorado and is the daughter of working class parents that work in the oil and gas industry and the meat industry. Rochelle’s passion for engaging in Colorado politics began when she joined the Greeley Youth Commission while attending Greeley Central High School.
She found her first opportunity to work in the political field when she became a Field Organizer in Weld County for President Obama’s re-election campaign in the summer of 2012. Since then she has been involved on top targeted local and national campaigns. She was recognized for her work by the Hispanic Women of Weld County when they presented her with their Community Leadership Award. In November 2015, she was elected as the first openly gay elected official to the City of Greeley. She is working to ensure that Greeley, Evans, and Garden City has the type of leadership that reflects the people it represents.
