Jeanne McQueeney for County Commissioner 



Hello and thank you for coming to caucus.  Your role in our democracy is so important!  I’m Jeanne McQueeney and I’m your County Commissioner.

My goal in running to be re-elected as your Eagle County Commissioner is to make Eagle County a place where working families succeed, where our children thrive, our young adults find opportunity, and our senior citizens age as vital members of the community.   This was my campaign promise in 2014 and continues to be my promise to Eagle County voters in 2018.

Every day as your commissioner I strive to create a better reality for our community.  Eagle County’s new mission and strategic plan is a reflection of these goals: Creating a better Eagle County for all.

I’d like to share some successes of the last 4 years:

  • During my first term over 683 affordable housing units were approved for construction by Eagle County.
  • Public transportation services expanded in Minturn and Dotsero.  
  • Access to mental health services is improving through innovative funding approved by voters in 2017.
  • 2,135 new acres of open space were protected during the last three years bringing the total acres protected to almost 13,000 since 2004.   
  • Eagle County has reduced emissions by over 20% since 2012, saving over $350,000 annually and proudly participates in the Eagle County’s Climate Action Collaborative.

The mechanism to achieving our goals is through innovation and collaboration.  I believe we can only address our challenges by working together. Effective communities engage all constituents: the outspoken, the quiet, the young, the aging, the economically secure and insecure. I aim to listen to everyone, ask questions, get the facts, and will continue to make informed decisions.

Please contact me with your thoughts, ideas, and questions at 970-471-0635 or  I humbly ask for your support and your vote. I will work hard to do right by you and our community.  THANK YOU!
