More About Gillian

I have lived in Golden Valley for 19 years with my husband Jeff, owner of Rosenquist Construction, our 3 teenage sons, puppy Waffle and cats Kira and Bean. We are active parents with Scout Troop 268 and our sons’ sports and activities. When we have free time, we enjoy the outdoors, live music, and checking out local restaurants and attractions.

“Gillian has done a terrific job serving Golden Valley on the City Council. I grew up here and care deeply about stewardship of our community. From bike lanes, open space and light rail, to effective fiscal management, Gillian knows what she’s doing and reflects GV’s values. I am also confident that she’ll strike the right balance on police and community public safety to protect everyone’s rights to fair, respectful and effective public safety. I encourage you to vote for Gillian’s re-election to the City Council.”

Senator Ron Latz
"I firmly believe in supporting local businesses."

Vision for Golden Valley

My vision is that Golden Valley is a destination city to live, work, create and recreate and our city government provides modern and responsive services. We must keep striving to make Golden Valley the place where everyone feels at home.

As a Council Member:

Community and connection are at the heart of all I do. I strive to mix deep listening with good judgment and future vision when making decisions.

In the four years I’ve been on Council, we’ve made great progress; our city government is:

  • Better connected with community members adding social media communications, interactive forums, a new city website, and deeper, intentional outreach.
  • More welcoming and inclusive after 2 years of diversity, equity and housing initiatives.
  • Healthier financially with debt reduced by over $20 million dollars and spending that is thoughtful and strategic.
  • Strategically partnered to advance important projects and initiatives such as bus rapid transit.
  • Actively addressing climate change as a Green Step 5 city with ambitious, measurable goals to reduce our carbon footprint, adding native planting and pollinator-safe practices, and adding organics recycling.
  • Supporting housing choices and stability for all with renter protections, housing diversity, support of lower-income home-buying options.
  • Better service-provider with dedicated public safety staff addressing mential health and social service support needs, quality city facilities and equipment, the best staff in the metro area.
