John Henry VansantJOHN HENRY VANSANT, ACTING CHAIR
A new resident of Boulder, John Henry Vansant is excited to support the development of progressive leadership in Boulder County and across Colorado. He grew up in the green mountains of Vermont with his family of four, who introduced him to politics at a young age. While attending Wesleyan University, he spent a summer in Boulder interning with the Colorado Public Interest Research Group, training for his senior year of cross country running, and researching for his thesis on sacred land disputes. Once he graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University with high honors, he moved out to Colorado to begin work as the campaign manager for Rep. Yadira Caraveo’s run for House District #31. He currently works as a Legislative Aide for Rep. Caraveo and is enrolled in the Boulder County Leadership Fellow program, promoting a progressive vision for Colorado on the state and local level. Outside of politics, he enjoys running, hiking, camping, skiing, and outdoor adventures throughout Colorado’s public lands.
