Castle Pines Elections – Mayor Race and City Council Seats
Castle Pines will hold a mayoral race and also elect council members for Districts 1, 2, and 3. Tera Radloff, the current mayor, faces two challengers in the race for mayor – Tracy Engerman, the District 3 councilmember, and David McEntire, the current president of the Castle Pines North Metro District. Radloff is currently in her first term as mayor and is running for reelection. However, Engerman is not running for re-election and must step aside if she wins.
Two candidates are vying for the mayor’s position in Castle Pines: current Councilmember Tracy Engerman and former Councilmember David McEntire. Engerman leads with 1,742 votes, while McEntire is third with 1,637 votes. According to the latest results, Douglas County election officials still have to verify nearly 400 more ballots. Both have stated that they are committed to working together in the best interests of the community.
The current council has begun work on a half-mile reconstruction of Castle Pines Parkway, but Lowen and McEntire say it has been too long. They say that rebuilding city streets is a priority. But they must step aside from the Metro District to run for city council, a decision that will have to be finalized once they are elected. They also note that the current condition of Castle Pines Parkway has been a concern for years.
After the disputed election results, the Castle Pines City Council will decide whether to appoint a replacement, call a special election or fill Engerman’s term. In both cases, the council has 90 days to fill the seat. In the case of a special election, it will cost the city $15,000, which is likely to be avoided. Engerman’s term expires in 2024, and McEntire must step down as president of Castle Pines Metro District. If Engerman wins, she will vacate her current council seat, and a special election will be held to fill the vacancy.
Engerman will challenge Mayor Radloff in District 3 to fill the vacancy. Although Engerman opted not to run for re-election, he said that it was his top priority to finish a five-year plan to rebuild Castle Pines Parkway and Monarch Boulevard. Another candidate in the race is David McEntire, the president of the Castle Pines North Metro District. Ben Price, the incumbent, is up against both candidates.
