by TexasGOPVote on February 18, 2015 at 10:50 AM
Rick Galindo III is a Republican Texas state representative representing State District 117. He ousted Democrat incumbent Philip Cortez. Rick Galindo III was born and raised on the Southside of San Antonio. From the very beginning, his parents – Oscar, a civilian employee at Kelly AFB, and Sylvia, who worked at USAA – instilled in him the values of education, hard work and giving back to the community. These values guide Rick to this day.
Knowing the importance of a good education, Rick's parents worked hard and sacrificed to send him to Central Catholic High School. After graduating, Rick attended St. Mary's University here in San Antonio, earning a degree in Finance and Risk Management.
Rick began his career working for Zachry Construction and Bexar County. Today, Rick serves as Risk Manager for Spectrum Association Management, serving numerous HOAs locally and across Texas. His wife is a public school teacher in the Northside Independent School District.
Always looking to give back to his community, Rick has served for over 7 years as an officer and director of the Risk and Insurance Management Society, a global non-profit. He continues to volunteer countless hours for the Salvation Army, Angel Tree and the San Antonio Food Bank.
As our State Representative, Rick will continue serving us by fighting for good new jobs for our community and better schools for all our children. Rick and Valerie, his wife of over 5 years, live in western Bexar County. They are raising their 2 young daughters with the same values of education, hard work and community service Rick's parents instilled in him.
