Thomas H. Galloway - 2nd Senate District-State Central Committee Man

February 11, 2018

Dear Erie County Democratic Party Friends,

My name is Thomas Galloway.  I am writing to ask for your endorsement for third term as the 2nd Senate District Seat of the State Central Committee, Ohio Democratic Party. I was first elected in 2012 following the redrawing of the district. 

A bit about my background. I am a lifelong resident of northwest Ohio and have lived in Perrysburg since 1976.  I worked as a Locomotive Engineer for the Penn Central-ConRail-Norfolk Southern system, retiring in October of 2007. I have been a union member since my undergraduate days at Ohio Northern University, first as a member of the American Federation of Musicians when I played with the Lima Symphony Orchestra, then the United Transportation Union, and finally the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET). I servedTHGalloway - Photo both organizations as Legislative Representative at the Local and State Level. I served as 2nd Vice Chairman of the Ohio State Legislative Board of the Brotherhood from 2007 until May of 2010 when my term expired. At that time, I was appointed as Political Advisor to the Board, a position I still hold. I was elected BLET Division 4 delegate to the Northwest Ohio AFL-CIO Central Labor Council, in 2002 and represented the Ohio State Legislative Board of the BLET and three terms as a member of the Executive Board. I serve on the steering committee of Toledo Area Jobs with Justice and currently serve as their Labor Chairman. I believe in and fully support organized labor, having carried a union card of one organization or another for close to 50 years.

Since retiring, I have spent time in Haiti with Missions International of America. My involvement in Haiti with Missions International of America, includes being on their board since it was founded in 2002 and 12 trips there since 2007. I am on three transportation-related committees of the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments. 

In addition to my union activities and Missions International of America, I am a member of the executive board of the Wood County Democratic Party and a member of the executive board of the Perrysburg Democratic Club, and currently serve as Precinct Captain. I'm a life-long Methodist/United Methodist. 

I have been married to my wife, Terri, for forty-six years. We have two married sons and two grandsons.

It has been a pleasure to serve you these past five years and look forward to your continued support as I seek to be a voice for the 2nd Senate District of the State Central Committee. I look forward to seeing you soon.

Yours Truly, 

Thomas Galloway
