If you don't get involved, we can't get things done here," Gallegos remembered her father saying of his activism.Gallegos' Houston activism was put on hold when she moved to Brownsville in 1972 after her husband was appointed fire chief.The couple returned to Houston in 1980, and, in 1987, Olga Gallegos won election to the HISD school board.

Her son, Mario Gallegos Jr. served in the Texas Legislature for 22 years until his death in 2012.

A Fayette County man has been charged with homicide in the shooting death of a 16-year-old Brownsville Area High School student inside the Republic volunteer fire station Sunday.
State police at Belle Vernon said George A. Matis Jr., 21, of Republic, was arraigned late Sunday and is being held without bail in the Fayette County Jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 7, according to court records.
Redstone police officers responding to a report around 4 p.m. that a person had been shot inside the fire department building found Parker Hess with a gunshot wound to the face, state police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
KDKA-TV, the Post-Gazette's news partner, reported that the two were in the fire station's business office when Mr. Matis, a fire captain, removed a pistol from his holster and “caused the pistol to discharge a bullet," striking Parker in the left cheek, according to a police criminal complaint. Neither Redstone police, the county coroner nor the Republic Volunteer Fire Company could be reached for comment.
Parker was a junior firefighter with the volunteer company in Republic.
Brownsville Area School District superintendent Philip Savini said late Sunday: "The district extends its sympathy and support to the family. The district will have counselors available on Tuesday upon students’ return to school."
