About Kimberly Sanberg
Kimberly Sanberg lives in Golden Valley near Brookview Park with her wife, two children, and two dogs. She loves Golden Valley and thinks it’s a great place to raise a family. She was drawn to Golden Valley by its welcoming community, excellent parks, and great schools.
She’s lived in Golden Valley since 2013 and served on Golden Valley’s Open Space and Recreation Commission since 2016. She was a founding organizer of the Golden Valley Pride Festival, Minnesota’s first suburban LGBTQ+ pride festival, now in its fourth year. She also advocated for a children’s indoor play area at the new Brookview Community Center, which helped make the Backyard at Brookview a reality.
Like other Golden Valley residents, she enjoys getting out in the community and watching Little League games at Isaacson Park, attending the Ice Cream Social at Brookview Park, sledding at Scheid Park, participating in Run the Valley, and going to the Golden Valley Pride Festival.
Throughout her career, Kimberly has worked at nonprofits and small businesses, as well as owned her own business. She has worked at nonprofits dedicated to environmental health, LGBTQ+ equality, and peace and justice.
Kimberly is running for Golden Valley City Council because she believes Golden Valley is a fantastic place to live, and that we can make it even better. We need collaborative, forward-looking people on city council who will take action.
