Experience You Can Count On
President of My Campaign Group (MYCG), Christie Gross, specializes in developing issues platforms and crafting public policy solutions for candidates seeking public office and elected officials nationwide. Her knowledge spans a wide array of topics, including economic development, health care, education, energy, the environment, aging and children’s issues, immigration, taxes and budgets, among others. She has over twenty years’ experience advising political candidates at the federal, state and local levels, and state and local government officials on key issues that matter.
Before founding MYCG in 2008, Christie got her start as a government management consultant. She was the youngest member of the firm to serve as a project manager where she led teams on several government initiatives, including government performance reviews for three different states that identified more than $100 million in efficiency savings, a state demographic study to determine the effect of population change on public resources, and a Governor’s public policy office – the first of its kind to be outsourced to a private entity. This is also where she developed her love for political campaigns, having led or supported the issue operations of more than 35 gubernatorial campaigns nationwide, including Governors Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Steve Beshear of Kentucky, Bill Ritter of Colorado, and John Lynch of New Hampshire. She was nominated for Campaigns & Elections magazine Rising Star award two years in a row for the policy services provided to campaigns.
MYCG has allowed Christie to carry over her government and political experience, leading the issues operations of more than 100 political candidates running for federal, state and local offices in North Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota, Virginia, Massachusetts, Kentucky, West Virginia and Wisconsin, with a career-combined total of more than 50 gubernatorial campaigns to-date. She has aided a number of high-profile campaigns, with earned media covered by major news publications, including the Washington Post and Boston Globe, among others. She served as the policy advisor to the Virginia Democratic Caucus in 2011 and has provided policy guidance to the Democratic Governors Association on a myriad of issues, in addition to advising elected officials and advocating on behalf of private entities.
In 2018, Christie authored and championed what came to be Delaware’s Fertility Care and Preservation Law that require commercial health insurance plans to include fertility benefits in their coverage. It’s the most comprehensive infertility mandate in the U.S. and considered a national best practice. CNN, the Associated Press, the Washington Post, the Delaware News Journal and Delaware 302 Health have covered her legislative achievement. She was awarded the Hope Award for Advocacy by Resolve: The National Infertility Association for her efforts and has counseled fertility advocates in other states, with success.
Christie is a two-time alumnus of the University of Delaware and holds a Master of Public Administration degree and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Political Science. She is a member of the National Honor Society of Public Affairs and Administration, Pi Alpha Alpha.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Christie now lives in Delaware, with her husband Marc and son Harrison.
