Councilwoman Stacie Gilmore

District 11, Denver City Council

Councilwoman Gilmore has over two decades of successful business and community service experience, recognized locally and nationally, and committed to making sure our community is represented on all issues affecting our quality of life. She is a fourth generation Coloradan, born and raised in Brush, Colorado with Spanish, Mexican, and Greek heritage. The Councilwoman moved to Denver in 1989 and earned her Bachelors of Science degree in Zoology and Chemistry from Metropolitan State College of Denver. As a Colorado Trust Fellow, she graduated summa cum laude from Regis University with a Master of Arts degree in Nonprofit Management.
She and her husband, Scott have been homeowners in Montbello for the past 17 years and have three children, Sterling-18, Samantha-16, and Serenity-10. Over the past decade her children have all attended Marrama Elementary School in Green Valley Ranch, where they have been active parents serving on the Collaborate School Committee (CSC). For the past 20 years, Councilwoman Gilmore has been very involved in the Far Northeast community. In 1996, sitting around her kitchen table, she and Scott co-founded the nonprofit, Environmental Leaming for Kids (ELK). ELK cultivates a passion for science, leadership, and service in a diverse community of learners. In 2014, ELK was nationally recognized by the White House with the Champion of Change award for engaging and educating our youth about science and the outdoors, introducing them to careers, and supporting them during their transition from high school to college.

In 2008, working with other community members, she founded the Registered Neighborhood Organization, Montbello 2020. Councilwoman Gilmore has served since its inception as a co-chair, with Ms. Ann White. She has also served for the past two years on the Denver Public Schools Bond Oversight Committee, in addition to volunteering with other organizations.
