Councilwoman Amanda P. Sandoval is a proud lifelong resident of Northwest Denver. In 1975 her parents opened a well-known area restaurant, La Casa de Tamales, now called La Casita and located in the Highlands neighborhood. Her dedication to Northwest Denver is rooted in the relationships she forged from serving others in the family restaurant, which remains a community gathering place. Through serving as aide to several former Denver Councilmembers, Sandoval developed the skills crucial to successful leadership, including challenging the status quo and forging diverse partnerships to affect real change. As Councilwoman for District 1, she has been a leader in her passions of land use, development and zoning. Her genuine compassion has been integral to addressing issues both large and small and creating a community where both current and future generations will thrive.
Amanda and her husband, Michael, have two children, Isabella “Bella” & Alexander “Alex”; a Goldendoodle named Winston, and a Jack Russell mutt named, Jack. Bella currently attends the Community College of Denver, while Alex is a student at North High School. The Sandoval-Encinas family resides in Northwest Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood.
