A return to civic service

A member of the Castle Pines City Council from 2014 to 2017, Geoff Blue rejoined Council again in 2022 as District III representative. “I missed seeing the public and helping make great things happen in Castle Pines,” stated Blue. In the years since he last served, Blue has turned his focus to his Greenwood Village-based business, Gessler Blue Law Firm, where he specializes in business litigation.
Born in Ohio and raised in New Jersey, Blue moved to Colorado in 2001 to be a more local uncle after his brother had his first child. Initially, Blue lived in the suburb of Mayfair in Denver before moving to Castle Pines in June 2013.
Blue chose Castle Pines in large part because of its beauty, but also because it is far enough from Denver and close enough to get there whenever he wants/needs. He is now in his third location within Castle Pines, this time having settled in Castle Valley.
Blue’s Daughter, Abby (13) is in her final year at Rocky Heights Middle School and will be attending Rock Canyon High School in the fall.
When not serving his community or working at his law firm, Blue is an avid biker and also plays rugby for the Denver Highlanders’ old boys on Thursday nights. The group plays touch rugby and travels a few times a year, just recently getting back from a tournament in Scottsdale, Arizona. Blue played rugby while getting his undergraduate degree at Princeton before his master’s at the University of Manchester and studied law at Georgetown University.
