Election 2021: Castle Pines council candidates list finalized

Incumbent mayor faces two challengers in November election

Posted

The slate of candidates for the Nov. 2 council election in Castle Pines is set for the mayoral race and council seats in Districts 1, 2 and 3.

In the mayoral race, incumbent mayor Tera Radloff will face two challengers. Tracy Engerman, current District 3 councilmember, and David McEntire, current president of the Castle Pines North Metro District, are challenging the mayor.

Radloff is in her first term as mayor. Prior to that, she served as a District 1 councilmember for two terms.

Engerman’s District 3 seat is not up for election in November. If Engerman wins the mayoral race, City Clerk Tobi Duffey said she will have to resign from her council seat. 

If the seat is vacated, Duffey said, the council will have 90 days to appoint a replacement or call for a special election to fill it. Due to the cost of a special election, Duffey said, the likely outcome would be the council will vote on a replacement to carry the seat through the 2023 election. Engerman’s current term expires in 2024.

If McEntire wins, the Castle Pines City Charter will require him to resign as president of the metro district.

In District 1, Chris Eubanks is running unopposed. Duffey said current Mayor Pro Tem Melissa Coudeyras opted not to seek reelection.

In District 2, incumbent Ben Price will face challenger Chuck Lowen. Lowen is the current director of the Castle Pines North Metro District.

Lowen and McEntire say they are running as a team in the election. Like McEntire, if Lowen wins the council seat, he will have to resign as director of the metro district.

In District 3, incumbent Roger Hudson will face challenger Merri Sheh.

Mayor and council seats are four-year terms in Castle Pines. There are three council districts with two members serving staggered terms from each district.
