Christine Sweetland

Council Member, District 2

When did you move to Centennial?

I grew up in Southeast Denver, and my husband and I decided to move to Centennial 18 years ago.

Why did you move here?

Our oldest son was 6 months old, so we were looking for a community that we could raise our children and this area felt like the neighborhoods we grew up in with lots of mature landscaping, parks and open space.

What do you like most about living in Centennial?

Our children have been able to walk to every school that they have attended and we are fortunate that our city has two of the top school districts in the state.   Centennial has amazing parks, open space and trail system and our family has lots of wonderful memories taking bike rides together, walking our dog, and going sledding. We have made great friends over the years and can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Why did you decide to run for City Council?

I’ve always been very active in the community volunteering in my children’s schools and neighborhood.   I’m self employed so I have a flexible schedule and as my boys have gotten older I’m able to dedicate more time to serve my community.

What are your primary goals as a Council Member?

I am excited by the opportunities that Centennial has over the next 10 years and I want to represent the community as we see our city grow and change.  I would like to see the city develop an affordable housing plan so our teachers, police officers, firefighters, can afford to live in the community that they serve and that our children are able to live in the city they grew up.
