My great great grandfather and grandmother settled 45th and Wadsworth in the late 1800’s. My family grew Pascall celery and helped improve agricultural business in the community as well as participate in community organizations like the Grange. My parents both grew up in Wheat Ridge and both are grandchildren of pioneers. I have a deep respect for the community that my family helped establish and value my family. The only way I can run for City Council is with the support of our families.
I am running for Wheat Ridge City Council because long ago my family realized the potential of Wheat Ridge. They found a way to build their successful businesses here and raise their family. Like them, I moved to Wheat Ridge because of its potential for my family’s future. Wheat Ridge today is very different from the Wheat Ridge my grandparents lived in. There are still some of the same issues, we see ourselves as a rural community even though on a good traffic day I can be in Downtown Denver in 20 minutes.
The city is at a critical crossroads; how do we move our neighborhoods, businesses and infrastructure forward together while finding new opportunities for revenue to support our community.
I attended Colorado State University then worked for Congressman Mark Udall in Washington DC. I have been staff on a Presidential campaign and worked for Governor John Hickenlooper. I helped establish the Governor’s Recovery and Resiliency Office after the 2013 floods and fires. I worked to bring state agencies, local governments, federal agencies, and businesses together. Then I worked at Colorado Department of Human Services in communications. I worked for the Colorado Lottery and then the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, where I have worked directly with local governments all over Colorado helping to improve infrastructure and outdoor recreation spaces.
I have the know how to move our neighborhoods forward while respecting where Wheat Ridge has been.
Thank you for learning more about me. I will work hard for you.

"Val is a person that one would want on any city council. The entire Wheat Ridge community will benefit greatly by electing Val to our district 4 council seat. Why? I have known Val Nosler her entire life and she is honest, hardworking, community and family oriented and possesses exceptional organizational skills. She has taken a fair, objective and fact based view on issues. Above all Val is a true grinder who gets it done.
