Like so many Coloradoans, Commissioner Kerr has done a little bit of everything as he began his career. He has worked as a snowboard instructor, waiter, bartender and substitute teacher before getting a permanent job as a social studies teacher at Dunstan Middle School, where he taught for seven years. He then designed curriculum and trained teachers for the Jefferson County School District, and most recently, taught students from across Jefferson County and Colorado through the District’s 21st Century Virtual Academy.
He joined the Colorado General Assembly in 2006 as a member of the House of Representatives, where he eventually rose to the position of Assistant Majority Leader. He was then elected to the State Senate, representing Senate District 22 until 2018.
He has been an effective champion for education, renewable energy, and the needs of working families in Jefferson County and across Colorado.
