Representative Ed Perlmutter (D-CO-07)

Congressman Ed Perlmutter was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2006.  He has deep roots in the 7th Congressional District and has lived in Jefferson County his entire life.  His grandfather and father ran a concrete business (in what is now the 7th District) for decades.  Congressman Perlmutter attended Jefferson County public schools and then worked construction with his father during the summers while in law school at the University of Colorado.  He chose to raise his three daughters in the district, and currently lives in Arvada with his wife, Nancy, a public school teacher, who also has three children.  In 1994, Congressman Perlmutter was elected to the Colorado State Senate as the first Democrat to hold the seat in nearly 30 years. He served two terms and garnered the reputation as a bipartisan bridge-builder and a champion of renewable energy and smart growth policies.  His top priority in the 115th Congress is creating more opportunity for the hardworking people in Colorado.  He supports job growth by promoting energy independence by working with the Colorado School of Mines, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and other world-class private sector energy businesses; moving forward with construction of the new VA Medical Center; and expanding Colorado’s role and economic development opportunities in the aerospace industry including the Orion manned space flight program and working on a long-term plan to get humans to Mars in 2033.
