Party Affiliation: Democrat





Chaunte Gilmore is running for House District 100. She believes in keeping public dollars in public schools and protecting local control. Gimore will work to expand access to behavioral & mental health care, substance abuse care, and suicide prevention resources for communities across the state, especially for young people and our veterans. Food security and creating more affordable housing are key to a healthier community as well. She will also fight back against government overreach to protect the right to access reproductive healthcare for every person. She believes in raising the minimum wage to a living a wage that keeps up with inflation. She supports parental leave for mothers, fathers, and caretakers. 

Gilmore also advocates for investing in education funding for a diverse workforce. Oklahoma must also protect the rights of expression in the workplace for religious minorities, our LGBTQ+ community, and other marginalized communities. In an effort to curb mass-incarceration, she believes we must be proactive in solving the root causes of crime and rehabilitate non-violent offenders. That means expanding pretrial diversion programs, ending cash bail to avoid turning county jails into make-shift debtors prisons and funding community programs and resources. She also supports veterans and says that from physical to mental health, employment, and housing, our Veterans need and deserve our support. Additionally, she believes that with the help of clean energy, public works projects, and green jobs, we can ensure a higher quality of life for generations to come.
