Rochelle Galindo is an American politician who was elected to the Colorado House of Representatives in the 2018 Colorado House of Representatives election.[1] She represents the 50th House District as a member of the Democratic Party.

She is out as a lesbian.[2]

Recall effort[edit]

Following Gallindo's yes vote on Colorado Senate Bill 19-181, a bill that would limit oil and gas production in the state, a committee was organized to recall her. Her district lies in Weld County, one of the state's major petroleum and natural gas producing regions. To be successful, the committee must gather nearly 6,000 valid voter signatures by June 3, 2019, and the recall question would appear on the ballot later in the year.[3]
