My Top 3 Priorities

  • Make college more affordable and help families save for their kids' education.
  • Smart transportation investments to fix our highways and roads and keep the economy moving.
  • Expand access to affordable, quality healthcare and housing.



Sunday 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 neighbors' 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 was a Starbucks District Manager and now runs a thriving family real estate practice, helping local families get their piece of the American Dream.

All her life, Sunday has given back to our community.  Sunday coached girls and boys soccer for 15 years, and was a volunteer art teacher in her children's schools.  From working with adults with special needs to volunteering with the early AIDS Foundation and helping field calls at a rape crisis hotline, Sunday has always helped people facing extraordinary challenges.  A steadfast supporter of women’s health, Sunday served as a volunteer patient advocate at Planned Parenthood, helping women get quality care and support.

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.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I’m running for Assembly because the career politicians just don’t get it.  It’s time for a change and a fresh approach to getting things done.

I’m not part of the downtown power establishment or the insiders in the Capitol.

I'm a mom raising my kids in Scripps Ranch.  And I run a small family business.  I understand the struggles ordinary people face, because I’ve lived them my entire life. 

And that’s what’s missing in Sacramento: your voices, your values, your needs. 

In the Assembly, I’ll 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. 

I’m a middle-class mom from San Diego, and I think that’s exactly the fresh perspective Sacramento needs.  And it’s the new leadership San Diego families deserve.
