Councilor Diane Gibson is serving her second term as City Councilor, representing District 7. Councilor Gibson moved to New Mexico in 1975. She, like many other transplants, fell in love with the beauty and culture here.

Councilor Gibson was born and raised in Detroit to working class parents who worked hard and highly valued education. Her family now lives in Colorado where she frequently visits.

She retired from Sandia National Laboratory in 2008 where she began her career as a prototype machinist. At that time she was only the third woman hired into the apprenticeship program. The eleven years before retiring Councilor Gibson worked as an Environment, Safety, Security and Health coordinator ensuring a safe, environmentally responsible workplace for over 200 employees.

Councilor Gibson hosts two Town Hall meetings a year, one each in the spring and fall for her district. Additionally there are a morning and an evening Coffee with the Councilor the fourth week of every month. All events are advertised on the District 7 website. Councilor Gibson is honored to serve the people of the District and welcomes them to these events.
