Kim Gower

VA-7 (D)
As a businessperson for twenty-five years, Kim considers many of the country's systems broken and feels an urgency to fix them before we lose programs that help children, seniors, and veterans. She wants to channel her professional experiences into being a leader in a solutions-based approach to running our country.
How does Kim align with Project 100's values?
  • Economic Opportunity: On the macro level, the debt crisis is the most critical issue the United States faces, Kim believes. On the micro level, she is concerned about homelessness and unemployment.
  • Equal Treatment Under the Law: Looking back to how the United States was founded, both our human rights ideals and the way we fell short of meeting those, Kim lists equal treatment as one of her key issues.
  • Healthy People & Communities: Health care is a top priority for Kim, as she is concerned not only with holding insurers and government leaders themselves accountable but with lessening fear of the unknown for the constituents of her district, most of whom could not afford health insurance if they lost their jobs or had a reduction of employer-covered benefits. The environment is also a key concern--Kim is focused on protecting the EPA so that it functions at full capacity and we do not go down the path of countries such as China, which is struggling mightily with pollution.
