Alice Donnelly Madden (born December 9, 1958) is a politician from Colorado and member of the Democratic party.[2] From 2001 to 2009, she served in the Colorado House of Representatives, representing the 10th district around Boulder. From 2005 to 2009, she served as Majority Leader.[3]

After 2009, Madden served as climate advisor and deputy chief of staff to Colorado governor Bill Ritter and as an official in the U.S. Department of Energy.[4]

In 2016, she was a candidate for the University of Colorado Board of Regents, but she lost to Republican Heidi Ganahl.[5][6] Madden ran in the Democratic primary in the 2020 United States Senate election in Colorado,[6][7] but withdrew after former Governor John Hickenlooper joined the race.[8]
