Elton Gallegly, a 'rank-and-file' Republican according to GovTrack, serves the 24th Congressional District of California. Gallegly was first elected to Congress in 1986.

Gallegly was born on March 7, 1944, in the Los Angeles suburb of Huntington Park. After attending what is now California State University, Los Angeles, he became a successful businessman and real estate broker. He settled in the Ventura County community of Simi Valley in 1968.

He entered public life in 1979 with his election to the Simi Valley City Council and, in 1982, became the City’s first directly elected mayor. He held that post until he ran for Congress in 1986 when the incumbent ran for the Senate. In 2006, Gallegly announced his retirement "for medical reasons", just after the filing deadline; however, he changed his mind and went on to win another term.

Congressman Gallegly and his wife, Janice, have four children and seven grandchildren. The couple makes their home in Simi Valley.
