Suzanne “Zan” Jones has over 24 years of public policy experience at the local, state and federal level.
Suzanne was elected to the Boulder City Council in November 2011, and currently serves as Boulder’s mayor pro tem. She is Boulder’s representative on the Denver Regional Council of Governments, Colorado Municipal League’s Policy Committee, and Urban Drainage and Flood Control District, among other assignments.
Suzanne’s day job is serving as executive director of Eco-Cycle, a 40-year old community nonprofit dedicated to promoting and implementing recycling, composting and other zero waste efforts across Boulder County, and promoting Zero Waste solutions as a means to address climate change. Prior to that, for 16 years Suzanne worked for The Wilderness Society, where she served as the Central Rockies Regional Director running the Society’s Denver office and leading coalition efforts to collaboratively protect our nation’s public lands and improve their management. Before moving back to Colorado where she spent much of her youth, Suzanne worked in Washington, D.C. as the National Wildlife Federation’s legislative representative on endangered species issues, and as congressional staff for the Fisheries & Wildlife Subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives. Suzanne has a M.S. in Resource Policy and Management from the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and a B.S. in Natural Resources from Cornell University.
When not championing recycling or sitting in council meetings, Zan enjoys Colorado’s treasured outdoors with family and friends—hiking, running, telemark skiing and mountain biking—and is a longtime ultimate Frisbee player with a mean forehand huck.
