Past:Member of City Council—District 1
Chris Rosselot began his career in public service working as an aide for US Senator Bob Casey in Pittsburgh. Chris focused on regional issues including economic and community development, environmental stewardship, transportation improvements, infrastructure projects, increasing healthcare access, and expanding early childhood education.
After leaving public service, Chris has played an integral role in community development projects in under-served communities. Chris has experience working with local governments, redevelopment authorities, non-profits, lenders and private investors in advancing projects that help revitalize communities, create local jobs, and increase tax revenue. Chris is also an active community volunteer and the former President of the Community Alliance of Spring Garden and East Deutschtown (CASGED), where he helped drive neighborhood initiatives, increase grant dollars, and expand participation in neighborhood meetings and events.
Chris has been a proud Northsider since he first moved to Pittsburgh in 2003. Chris and his wife Genevieve were married at St. Anthony’s Chapel in Troy Hill and now live in Spring Garden where they’re raising their two little native Northsiders a few doors down from Chris’ parents. Their two children attend Pittsburgh Public’s Allegheny Traditional Academy on the Northside.
When Chris has free time you may find him paddling in his kayak on the Allegheny River or hiking in Riverview Park. As an avid baseball fan and former Division 1 pitcher, Chris also enjoys walking down to PNC Park to take in a Buccos game.
