Jasmine Gore

V3 Regional Program Manager (Central Virginia)

Jasmine Gore

V3 Regional Program Manager (Central Virginia)

Jasmine Gore had a sense of civic duty inspired by her Veteran parents that enabled her to make history in November 2012. At the age of 25, Ms. Gore became one of the youngest local elected officials within the Commonwealth of Virginia when she was elected to represent Ward 4 for the City of Hopewell, Virginia. In that election, she also became the first African-American and first female ever to hold that seat. For two years Ms. Gore served as one of the youngest Vice Mayors in Virginia. In 2019 she became the youngest African American and female Mayor within the Commonwealth.

Her forward-thinking has earned her the distinction of “Emerging Leader of the Year”, and recognition by Style Weekly as one of “Richmond’s Top 40 Under 40” for being among “young standouts who are lifting the community to greater heights.”

In November 2014, she became the youngest appointed Board Member for the National League of Cities. In addition, she was elected to serve as the National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials Region 3 Director.

Governor McAuliffe tapped Ms. Gore for a gubernatorial appointment to serve on the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Board of Medicine and the Local Government Advisory Board to the Chesapeake Bay Executive Council. She has proven her advocacy for Veterans, rallying the City of Hopewell behind a pledge to end Veteran homelessness. As a result, the City of Hopewell was acknowledged both federally and statewide as contributing to the Commonwealth being the first state to functionally end veteran homelessness.

She holds a B.A. in political science with a B.S. in biology and a minor in chemistry from Virginia Commonwealth University. Contact Jasmine for any questions about the V3 Program at:
