Matt Jones Announces State Senate Bid
Current State Representative Will Continue the Fight for Middle Class Coloradans
State Representative Matt Jones formally announced his candidacy for state senate in Senate District 17, which covers portions of eastern Boulder County including Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, and western Erie. The seat is currently held by Brandon Shaffer, who is term limited. Jones is currently serving his 4th term as a State Representative.
Jones returned to the Statehouse in 2010 when he handily won the primary election for House District 12, Longmont, Louisville and Lafayette, by ten points and the general election by 28 points. He previously served three terms in 1987-1993.
Jones’ co-chairs include former State Representative Paul Weissmann, County Commissioners Cindy Domenico and Ben Pearlman, former County Commissioner Jana Mendez, District Attorney Stan Garnett, Sheriff Joe Pelle, and former Longmont City Council member Tom McCoy.
“As a senator I will be even more able to get Coloradans back on track and feeling stronger than before,” Jones said. “I will continue to work on bipartisan solutions to create jobs, fund quality education, and provide affordable health care and a clean environment. Our current economic adversity further stokes my passion to ensure opportunity and security for middle class families.”

Jones added, “I want to thank Senate President Brandon Shaffer for his leadership and tremendous service to the citizens of eastern Boulder County.”
