InfoElected to four terms in the state legislature, Andrew Romanoff was the Speaker of the House from 2005 to 2009. He led the Democrats to their first back-to-back majorities in more than 40 years. His leadership earned national recognition, including Governing magazine’s top honor as Public Official of the Year.

Romanoff’s commitment to our community is no accident. His mother Gayle, a social worker, and his father Marvin, a judge, instilled in Andrew and in his twin sister Hilary a passion for public service. Andrew’s grandparents worked for Project Hope, bringing medical supplies and treatment to Africa and Latin America.

Romanoff took an early interest in civil rights. As a student, he learned about the Southern Poverty Law Center’s efforts to combat Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups. The Center’s Klanwatch Project and a state civil rights agency became two of his first employers.

After earning a bachelor’s degree at Yale, Romanoff set off for Costa Rica and Nicaragua, where he taught English in rural high schools. After coming home, he earned a master’s degree in public policy at Harvard and a law degree at the University of Denver.

Romanoff worked in the private sector, as a senior associate at the Colorado consulting firm of Greenberg Baron Simon & Miller, before accepting a job with Gov. Roy Romer. He worked in the Office of Policy and Initiatives, analyzing state and national proposals for education reform.

Romanoff has taught at the University of Colorado, the Community College of Aurora, Metropolitan State College of Denver, and Red Rocks Community College. He has served on the boards of the Center for Women’s Employment and Education, the Colorado Children’s Campaign, Colorado Common Cause, and the Colorado Health Foundation; headed two neighborhood groups; and mentored at-risk students through Denver Kids. His contributions to Colorado have been recognized by more than 50 organizations throughout the state.
