Julie McCluskie


In 2018, Julie was first elected State Representative for House District 61 which includes five of the most beautiful counties in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and along the Western Slope. In her first session, she was appointed to serve on the Rural Affairs & Agriculture, Education and Appropriations committees. Over the 2019-2020 fiscal year, she was selected to Chair both the School Finance Interim and Appropriations Committees.

Passionate about public education, Julie spent more than a dozen years working in Summit School District providing exceptional district leadership in strategic communications, community engagement and student behavioral/mental health initiatives. She spent several years away from schools while working at the state Capitol serving as the Director of Communications for former Lt. Gov. Joseph Garcia. McCluskie played a key role in Colorado’s implementation of Colorado Reads 2013: The Early Literacy Initiative, launching Colorado Literacy Week and the One Book 4 Colorado statewide program. Her skills as facilitator and liaison were key in the orchestration of statewide tours, numerous community conversations and public events at the state level. She believes the success of Colorado’s education initiatives relies on meaningful community partnerships built through consistent and strategic outreach.
