MEET SUNDAY GOVER

sunday_portrait.jpgSunday Gover is a lifelong San Diegan, public school mom and a successful small business owner.  Now, Sunday is running for State Assembly to bring new leadership to Sacramento and make real progress on the priorities that matter to San Diego.

As a mother and 18-year Scripps Ranch resident, Sunday understands the challenges ordinary people face and will bring that fresh perspective to Sacramento to deliver for our communities.

Running a small family business, Sunday knows what it takes to create jobs, meet a payroll and contribute to a growing economy. 

In the State Assembly, Sunday will focus on the priorities that matter to us.  Helping families afford college.  Fixing our highways and roads.  Expanding healthcare coverage.  Making it easier to build affordable housing.  Rooting out wasteful spending and abuse. 

Raised by a single mom, Sunday Gover knows what it’s like to overcome tough challenges and work hard to succeed.  It started with a paper route, babysitting and mowing neighbor’s lawns at age 12.   Sunday worked her way through college and beat cancer in her 20s.  Always working to get ahead and provide for her kids, Sunday started out as a Starbucks District Manager and now runs a thriving family real estate practice, helping local families get their piece of the American Dream.

Sunday attended University of San Diego High School and graduated from UCSD.  She lives in Scripps Ranch with her partner Kim, their four children and their dog, Lily.

    Let me just say how proud I am that my oldest friend Sunday is taking a chance and doing her part to make a difference. I can’t believe she’s running for state assembly in California! I’ve known Sunday since I was six years old. We grew up across the street from each other, and went to school together from kindergarten through high school. She’s just a marvelous person: full of integrity, passion, and good humor. I wish I still lived in California so I could vote for her. It would give me such pride. Although we haven’t seen each other in a long time, I know her well enough to say: she’d bring the right values and perspective to Sacramento. From what I read in the headlines, California needs more people like her in public service. Good luck, old friend! — Kenneth Osgood, Professor of U.S. History, Colorado School of Mines (Oh, and FYI, she didn’t know that I was going to post this… but I just wanted to publicly wish her well.)
