Parker Town Council Candidates
Five candidates for Parker’s town council election have been finalized after filings were submitted the last week of August.
There are three seats up for election in 2022. Winners of the November election will be seated to four-year terms.
Incumbents Josh Rivero, Anne Barrington and Cheryl Poage have all entered the race in hopes of being re-elected. Brandi Wilks and Brian Carruthers are the two other candidates.
Barrington and Rivero were elected in April 2021 during an election to replace two positions. One spot was made vacant when Jeff Toborg was elected mayor and another when Renee Williams resigned.
Rivero, who was also a town council member from 2012 to 2020, is the owner of Fika Coffee House. Barrington is the owner of Barrington Group Real Estate and co-owner of Card My Yard Parker. Poage is a retired employee of South Metro Fire Rescue.
Town council members make decisions about local policies, oversee master plans, hire the town administrator and approve the annual budget, which in 2022 was $129 million.
The Chamber of Commerce is set to have a candidate forum on October 6, 2022.
