Jennifer Zimmerman

FL-1 (D)
Current office holder: Matt Gaetz (R)
Jennifer Zimmerman - Dr. Z, as she is known in her community - is a pediatrician with nearly two decades of experience caring for children and families in Florida's 1st district. She was born in the Philippines and immigrated to the U.S. 25 years ago.
How does Jennifer align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: Dr. Z understands the importance of access to good education, having grown up in a country where educational opportunity was restricted by gender and economic status. She believes that in order to foster the American dream for all students, we need to bolster our public education system, ensuring students stay in high school as well as offering broader vocational options and affordable higher education.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Dr. Z is committed to bipartisan immigration reform that simplifies processes, supports the economy, provides protections for our defense, and encourages immigration for people across the globe looking to work for a better life.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Dr. Z intimately knows the vital role healthcare plays in everyone's lives. She has observed the devastating impact inadequate health care has on the most vulnerable in our society. As a physician, she took an oath to care for everyone who seeks her help and she pledges to take this platform to Washington D.C. She believes environmental protection and regulation is a job for the federal government and that proposals to deregulate and eliminate the EPA are reckless. She is strongly committed to the health and well-being of our community and its natural resources. She supports comprehensive gun reform, including universal background checks and an increase in minimum purchasing age from 18 to 21.
