Jon Monteith

Jon Monteith serves as Communications Director for One Colorado, a statewide organization fighting to secure equality for Colorado’s LGBT community. His early 2013 sprint for the Mountain West – and quest for marginal political detox – came after a five-year stint in Washington, DC, most recently as a speechwriter for the Democratic National Committee. Jon has also worked for the Human Rights Campaign and as a congressional press aide. A proud graduate of the University of Illinois, Jon was once described as a “militant homosexual” by the official right-wing publication on campus; he considers it a badge of honor to this day.
