About the Candidate

Dr. Eileen Gallagher is a pediatrician, mother, volunteer, and Democratic candidate for Utah State Senate District 26. She worked full-time as a general pediatrician for twenty years while raising five children with her husband and secret weapon Tim Gallagher. She and Tim chose to move to Utah in 2014 to finish raising children in beautiful Utah. 

Since moving to Utah, Dr. Gallagher has worked part-time as a pediatrician while spending more time with family. She has continued to be a volunteer in school, church, and on political campaigns. 

2018 is the year for Democratic candidates like Dr. Gallagher: moderate, new to politics, and ready to launch a new generation of activists. Dr. Gallagher will promote children’s health, clean air, and environmental stewardship. 

Her husband, who can build anything and knows everything about cars, has agreed to attend campaign events this summer on the condition that he gets to attend as many demolition derbies as possible.
