Jamie Giellis
Candidate for Mayor

"The daughter of a small-town Iowa mayor, she rose to some prominence in Denver as a new breed of public-private leader." – The Denver Post, December 26, 2018

People are the biggest part of her story. Community is core to who she is and how she works. At 42, Jamie has carved out a career that helps to empower people and neighborhoods to forge partnerships with each other and local government to address complicated urban issues affecting the character and stability of their communities. Part-community organizer, part-strategic planner, part-people-champion, her work has been focused on using policy and planning to help ease the impacts of growth that have come with the return of people to cities – here in Denver, across the country and around the world.
