Parachute to hold town board elections

Parachute’s town board election April 2 will feature some old faces and some new.

Mayor John Loschke will face off against Judy Hayward. Loschke, who manages the Super 8 Motel in Parachute, has been mayor for eight years. Hayward, who also serves on the Colorado Mountain College board of trustees, is a community activist.

Three seats are also up for election for the town Board of Trustees, said town manager Juanita Satterfield. Incumbents Billie Sue Koch, Robert LeBorgne and John Yadloski are running unopposed.

Koch is retired from Unocal, an oil shale exploration and production company that operated in Parachute from 1983 to 1991.

LeBorgne owns and operates Toby’s Vacuum Service.

Yadloski is the head of maintenance for Garfield County School District 16.

The mayor and town trustees will be elected to four-year terms.
