Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval

Photo of District 1 councilwoman Amanda SandovalAmanda Sandoval’s Northwest Denver roots run deep. Not only is she a Denver native and lifelong resident of Northwest Denver, but in 1975 her parents opened a well-known area restaurant, La Casa de Tamales in the Berkeley neighborhood. It's now called La Casita and located in the Highlands neighborhood. Her love and dedication for Northwest Denver is rooted in the relationships she forged from serving others in the family restaurant, which remains a community meeting place where discussions turn into actions, and those actions improve the lives of Denver residents and businesses. Through years of listening, learning and observing, Amanda developed the skills crucial to successful leadership, including challenging and improving the status quo. This is clear in her work for the City of Denver. Her genuine compassion has been integral in addressing community issues both large and small, and her experience working with city agencies and residents alike, has earned positive outcomes in every Northwest Denver neighborhood. Amanda understands the value of differing perspectives, the need for well-reasoned solutions, and how to fiercely defend the interests of Northwest Denver residents. These are the reasons why Amanda will be the Voice for District 1.  

Amanda and her husband, Michael Encinas, have two children, Isabella “Bella” age 16 and Alexander “Alex” age 15; a Goldendoodle named Winston, and a Jack Russell mutt named, Jack. Bella is currently a Junior at North High School, and will spend 2019 as a U.S. Senate Page in Washington D.C., while Alex is in 8th grade at Skinner Middle School. The Sandoval-Encinas family resides in Northwest Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood.
