Biography

First elected to Denver City Council in 2011, and re-elected in 2015, Robin Kniech is one of two At-Large Councilmembers. She is seeking re-election for a final allowable term to build on the successes she has achieved working alongside Denver’s community. The Councilwoman has a record of bold accomplishments on expanding access to affordable housing, including the establishment of Denver’s first-ever dedicated affordable housing fund, launching an eviction defense pilot program, and expanding housing protections against discrimination based on source of income. Additional policy victories include apprenticeship utilization and targeted outreach to expand access to construction careers, energy efficiency for commercial buildings, and working with the LGBTQ Commission to update Denver’s building code to require gender-neutral access to single-stall restrooms. She is the first out member of the LGBTQ community to serve on the City Council, and has a wife, Katie, and a son, Nathaniel.
