Our Candidates / Virginia / Kimberly Tucker

Kimberly Tucker

Running for House of Delegates 81
Election: Nov. 7, 2017

Kimberly Anne Tucker is a retired educator, a cancer survivor, a military wife and mother, and a grassroots organizer. As a teacher and Assistant Principal, Kimberly had a firsthand look at our public school system, the impact it has on students’ lives, and the vital role it plays in our communities. That experience fostered her commitment to protecting and strengthening our public school system.

But it was a journey through our healthcare system that inspired the cornerstone of her campaign for the House of Delegates. Kimberly was successful in a battle against cancer but understood that there might have been a very different outcome if it weren’t for the excellent medical coverage she was fortunate enough to have. That insight inspired her campaign for the House of Delegates and motivated her commitment to ensuring that everyone in Virginia has the coverage they need.

Issues: Advocating for health care for all, strengthening public schools, helping military families, protecting our environment, and expanding opportunities for people with disabilities.
