Biography

Danny Gilmore (born December 2, 1949) was a Republican Assemblymember from California's 30th State Assembly district. In the November 2008 election, Gilmore won an upset victory over Shafter Mayor Fran Florez, the mother of State Senator and former 30th District Assemblyman Dean Florez.

Education

Gilmore is a graduate of Palomar College as well as the Advanced, Supervisory and Management courses of the Police Officers Standard Training program. Gilmore also taught weaponless defense courses at West Hills College Lemoore.

Early career

Military career

Gilmore started his public service when he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1969 and after assignments at Camp Pendleton, El Toro, and Okinawa, he received his honorable discharge and upon graduation from the CHP Academy in 1972 embarked upon a 31-year career with the California Highway Patrol.

CHP career

Gilmore was a CHP officer from 1972 until 2003. He worked for the South Los Angeles, Oceanside, Sacramento, King City, and Hanford CHP office during his career.

In 1981, Gilmore was promoted to sergeant and assigned to King City. His subsequent promotion to Lieutenant saw him assigned as the Hanford Area Commander. Promoted to Captain, Gilmore was assigned as Commander of the Visalia Area in 1995. His final promotion, before retiring in 2003, was as Assistant Chief to the Central Division Headquarters, Fresno.

Gilmore also led the Patrol's Physical Training Unit. Cited as one of the most demanding training programs in law enforcement, Gilmore drilled CHP Cadets daily for four years.

Active with his fellow law enforcement colleagues, Gilmore held membership with the California Peace Officers Association, the Tulare County Chiefs Association and is a lifetime member of the California Highway Patrolman's Association.

Political career

2006 election

In one of the closest elections of the cycle, Gilmore lost the election to incumbent Nicole Parra by less than 900 votes.

2008 election

As Assemblywoman Nicole Parra (Gilmore's predecessor and 2006 opponent) and State Senator Dean Florez (Parra's predecessor) have been feuding for years, Parra refused to endorse Shafter Mayor Fran Florez, Dean Florez's mother and Gilmore's Democratic opponent in the race. Instead, Parra, a Democrat, crossed party lines to endorse Gilmore, a Republican. Gilmore defeated Florez in the November 4, 2008 general election, and now represents the 30th Assembly District.

2010 election outlook

Florez has announced that she will seek a rematch against Gilmore [1]. Florez will face a primary challenge from Pete Parra, the father of former Assemblywoman Nicole Parra [2].

On January 19, 2010, Gilmore announced that he would not be a candidate for reelection, saying "If I could sum up in one word my feeling about serving in the Legislature, that word would have to be 'frustration. This most recent phase of public service does not suit my family or me. There are those who enjoy political games and legislative intrigue. I'm just not one of them." [3]. He has endorsed David Valadao, a dairy farmer, to succeed him. [4] Valadao won the election.

Personal

Gilmore is married to his lifelong sweetheart, Cindi, and together they raised two children, a son, Damon, and a daughter, Deanna, who have now given them six grandchildren.

Gilmore and his family have lived in Hanford, California since 1985 and have been active members of the Calvary Christian Center.
