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 Pendletonmarker, El Toromarker, and Okinawamarker, 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 Angelesmarker, Oceansidemarker, Sacramentomarker, King Citymarker, and Hanfordmarker 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 Visaliamarker Area in 1995. His final promotion, before retiring in 2003, was as Assistant Chief to the Central Division Headquarters, Fresnomarker.

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 Countymarker 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 Shaftermarker 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 [732976].


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.

The Gilmore's have called Hanford, Californiamarker home since 1985 and have been active members of the Calvary Christian Center.
