I met Matt Jones more than seven years ago when he was serving Eastern
Boulder County as our representative in the Colorado State House. I got the
chance to watch him up close when I interned in the Colorado Senate. I saw
him go to work fighting every single day on Boulder County’s behalf.

The thing that has impressed me most about Matt hasn’t just been his
ability to fight for our community, it’s been his steady hand and proven

In fact, as I look at the field of candidates for Boulder County
Commissioner, Matt is the only proven leader in the bunch. Over the eight
years he’s spent fighting for us in the legislature, Matt has proven time
and time again that he’s able to get the job done.

Whether it’s battling the oil and gas industry, getting funding for Boulder
County in the aftermath of the 2013 flood, or pushing Denver bureaucrats to
support Northwest rail, Matt is the proven leader Boulder County needs on
the commission.

Matt Jones is only candidate ready to lead Boulder County from day one.
He’s a proven leader who will fight for us every single day, just like he
has as a legislator for the last eight years.

Jake Marsing
