Representative Jared Polis (D-CO-02)

Congressman Jared Polis was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2008.  Congressman Polis believes that education is the single most meaningful investment America can make in its economic future and in its people. His efforts in this area focus on making accountability work at all levels, expanding educational models, and improving persistently failing schools with data-driven changes to successful achievement gaps.  While still attending Princeton University, Congressman Polis co-founded his first company, American Information Systems, a success he followed with the launch of bluemountain.com and ProFlowers.com.  Congressman Polis first won elected office when voters selected him for a seat on the Colorado State Board of Education in 2000, on which he served for six years including as vice-chairman and chairman.  He also founded two innovative charter schools: the New America School, where he served as Superintendent, to extend the benefits of English literacy and a high school liberal arts education to new immigrants, and the Academy of Urban Learning, which educates homeless teens or those from unstable living environments.  Congressman Polis also works with Democrats and Republicans to reform our nation’s broken immigration policies, to advance the cause of civil rights and equality for all, and to protect Colorado and the world’s natural beauty and environment.
