Biografía

Kristin Gaspar is Chairwoman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.  A small business owner, community leader, and mother, she knows first-hand the challenges facing our small businesses and the families who depend on them.

In 2002, Kristin and her husband grew a family healthcare practice, Gaspar Doctors of Physical Therapy, from a 700-square foot space to seven locations throughout North County San Diego.  As CFO, Kristin helped build the business to more than 140 employees treating nearly 7,000 patients.

As Kristin’s business grew, so did her family, and she felt it was time to play a more active role in her community.  She decided to run for the city council on a platform of fiscal responsibility and a return to basics.  She came in first place ahead of two Democratic incumbents and after two terms on the Council, became the first elected Mayor of Encinitas.  As mayor of a coastal Democratic city, she demonstrated how to listen, lead, and succeed with conservative principles.

In 2016, Kristin defeated incumbent Democratic Supervisor Dave Roberts in a seat Hillary Clinton carried by 20 percentage points.  The youngest woman ever elected to the Board, her victory marked the first defeat of an incumbent in 32 years.

As Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors, Kristin has been a leader in addressing mental health, addiction, and homelessness issues, as well as investing in programs designed to help veterans and their families navigate the transition to civilian life.  She’s also been a local leader in the fight for a cure for dementia and Alzheimer’s diseases.

Kristin and Paul have three children; Carson, Payton, and Addie; and one dog, Frank. In her free-time Kristin coaches and is active in community organizations.  A native of San Diego, she graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de KPBS and the League of Women Voters of North County San Diego (6)

Family reunification is a process that allows immigrants already residing in the U.S. to bring in additional family members. Do you support limiting this process? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

Reform of our immigration system is critical to our national security as well as our regional economy.  San Diego’s life sciences and technology need more high-skilled workers and I support expanding H1B visas while we develop more STEM graduates in the U.S. to fill those jobs.

Do you support expanding the current border wall between U.S. and Mexico? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

San Diego is fortunate to have a strong regional border in large part because we already have a wall in place.  However, there are still vulnerabilities that allow human and drug trafficking, and other criminal activities.  That is why it is important to enforce federal immigration laws, including opposition to so-called “sanctuary” laws being advocated by Sacramento politicians.  As elected leaders, we have an obligation to respect the law, whether we agree with it or not. 

Do you support creating additional regulations on gun ownership? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

I support the Constitution of the United States of America, including the 2nd Amendment and I support the strengthening of of background checks to protect our citizens.

Should the U.S. remain in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

The North American Free Trade Agreement has many avenues for renegotiation to ensure that the United States is treated fairly and that our agreements with other countries benefit the American workers as well as ensures free trade in our modern society

Do you support raising the federal gas tax to improve the national transportation infrastructure (for example roads, train tracks, and bridges)? Why or why not?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

The GOP tax reform bill signed into law last year provides a $3,561 tax cut for the average middle-class family in the 49th District.  As CFO of my family’s small business, I learned first-hand the challenges of growing a business with unnecessarily high and complicated taxes and I strongly supported the tax reform bill.  I see the direct impact that our tax code has on families and small businesses and as a member of Congress, I will vote to make tax reform permanent.  I support the repeal of the gas tax, which directly impacts every family in the 49th District, as well as the Cap & Trade Gas Tax, which will drive taxes up as high as 73 cents a gallon.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Kristin Gaspar:

My husband and I have built a community health care practice from one 700-square foot space to seven locations employing more than 140 people who treat more than 6,500 patients throughout North County San Diego.  As CFO, I’ve worked with patients and insurance companies and see the dramatic rise in the costs of healthcare because of Obamacare.  I support the complete repeal of Obamacare with a healthcare system that puts patients first, drives down costs, and eliminates the individual mandate.  Association health plans, insurers providing coverage across state lines, and 100% deductibility for healthcare expenses are just a few ways we can lower costs.
