Elected County Commissioner in November 2015, Joe Gale's successful campaign is considered to be one of the biggest upsets in Pennsylvania's 2015 election cycle. Despite being unendorsed by the Republican Party Establishment, Montgomery County voters chose Joe Gale as their nominee for Commissioner in the primary election.
Opposition from his own political party carried over into the general election but Joe, with an independent grassroots campaign, was able to garner enough support from Republican, Democrat, and Independent voters to earn a position on the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners.
Joe Gale is a lifelong resident of Montgomery County. Raised in Plymouth Township, he attended schools in the Colonial School District. He is a graduate of Temple University's Fox School of Business where he earned a degree in Finance and Real Estate. While in college Joe held several leadership roles within student government and community organizations.
Upon graduation from Temple University, Joe began working as a Recording Clerk in the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds department. In this position Joe saw first-hand county government at work and closely followed county operations. Joe then expanded his financial background in the private sector where he worked in the mortgage division of one of the country's largest home building corporations, NVR Inc.
Joe believes that a common sense approach to government focused on putting people before politics will keep our fiscal house in order and continue to make Pennsylvania a great place to live, raise a family, work, and grow a business.
