Who is Ross Cunniff?
Ross Cunniff is completing his first term as District 5 council member. He has been a strong defender of neighborhood rights, and has pushed for policies to protect and enhance Fort Collins’ unique character, including natural areas, parks, trails, open space, and historic landmarks.
Hewlett-Packard brought Ross and his wife Jill to Fort Collins nearly 30 years ago, and they instantly fell in love with the community.
They have volunteered in many local organizations. These include the Food Bank for Larimer County, the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery, and Debut Theatre Company. The couple has also been deeply involved with their local schools and churches.
Ross and Jill have two adult daughters and one granddaughter. Both daughters are graduates of Poudre School District.
Cunniff has been employed at NVIDIA, a computer technology company, for the past fifteen years, and has over 30 years experience in the computer industry, including significant leadership and management experience. He served eight years on the Poudre School District Board of Education, including nearly three years as its President. In 2012, Ross chaired the newly-formed Fort Collins Energy Board. In addition to his volunteer efforts in the community, Cunniff enjoys biking, hiking, stargazing, woodworking, and working on his electric car conversions in his spare time.
