Updated Results: Rivero, Barrington reelected, Wilks ahead of Poage

Mayor Toborg happy with council makeup, pays tribute to Poage


With three seats up for election, Parker voters decided between five candidates, including three incumbents.

Seeking reelection are council members Anne Barrington, Cheryl Poage and Joshua Rivero.

Seeking to unseat at least two incumbents this year were Brandi Wilks and Brian Carruthers.

Just after midnight, Douglas County released updated numbers, showing Rivero and Barrington are headed reelection. Wilks, with a 1,200-vote lead over councilmember Poage, will join the six-member council.

In campaigning, Wilks teamed up with Rivero and Barrington with signs posted throughout the community to elect the three together.

Growth and smart development has been a primary focus of this election cycle, as Parker continues to grow along with Castle Rock and the rest of Douglas County.

The Parker Town Council consists of six council members and Mayor Jeff Toborg who is a face of the city but does not vote.

The morning after the election, Toborg said the current council with the addition of Wilks will be strong.

Toborg said Rivero serving as a senior member of the council continues to serve as a strong leader, while Barrington did a lot of great work during her first term.

Toborg said Wilks has great focus and will be a welcome addition to the council.

However, Toborg said he will miss Poage, who he said is a founding member of the city and has worked for decades to bring open space, trails and success.

"Cheryl has served the Town of Parker for 50 years," he said. "She has been a force. I will miss her advice, although I am sure I will continue to receive it. I am proud to have worked with one of Parker's founders."
