Matt Jones For County Commissioner
Announcement News Release
Today State Senator Matt Jones announced he is running for Boulder County Commissioner. His life experience, new solutions and proven progressive leadership uniquely qualifies him to be an effective commissioner.
“Having twice survived cancer, I know what it is like to be knocked down. I also know how to keep hope, get back up and come back stronger, just as we must stand up to Donald Trump and regressive policies. We must keep Boulder County a leader on climate, public lands, transportation, and education. We cannot let Trump and the federal government undercut the progress Boulder County has made. We have a great county. I’ll fight to keep it that way.”
Jones combines his strong life experience with extensive success at the state and local government level. He has served as State Senator and State Representative for 13 years, much of that in leadership positions. He has 18 years of local government experience as a Boulder open space and trails planner and part-time wild-land firefighter, including working on the 2010 Fourmile fire. Jones is currently Deputy Minority Leader for Conservation, Clean Energy and Climate Change in the State Senate. As commissioner, he would continue to promote wind and solar energy, fight oil and gas corporations, stand up for Northwest Rail and transportation funding, and defend health care security as a right.
Jones lives in Louisville with his wife Shari Heinlein and their pets. Their daughter Jessica recently graduated college with honors and has started a small business.
Commissioner Cindy Domenico is term limited in 2018 and cannot run again.
