Commissioner | Eagle County Government
Matt Scherr is currently an Eagle County Commissioner and previously served on Minturn, Colorado’s town council–some of that tenure was served as its mayor. His political role is accidental, as his background includes an undergraduate degree in psychology, an early career in telecommunications, a later transition to community leadership development, a pivot to community sustainability practices and always just general entrepreneurial subsistence living. On second thought, maybe his political fate was inevitable. His greatest priority as a county commissioner is a people- and planet-centered economy, which he sees as our best chance to address the climate crisis.
