About Councilman Nevitt

Chris Nevitt was born into an American Foreign Service family and spent his childhood traveling around the globe. Born in Ubonrajathani, Thailand, Chris also spent time growing up in Bangkok, Thailand; Lagos, Nigeria; Canberra, Australia; and that most exotic of locales, Fairfax County, Virginia. Of Quaker heritage, Chris earned his undergraduate degree at Haverford College, a Quaker college outside Philadelphia. He went on to earn a PhD in political economy from the University of California, San Diego, then spent six years teaching at Arizona State University.

In 2001, Chris and his wife Lisa moved to Denver – something of a homecoming for Lisa, whose maternal family are long-time Denver natives. In 2002, Chris joined the Denver Area Labor Federation in 2002 and helped found and run the Front Range Economic Strategy Center, or FRESC, a research, policy, and community-union partnership organization. In 2007, Chris was elected to the Denver City Council with 63% of the vote. From 2010 - 2012 Chris served as City Council President, helping guide Denver governance through three mayoral administrations and two City Councils.
