The HBA’s Metro Housing Coalition supported two candidates in an April 20 special election in Parker to fill two vacant seats on City Council. The HBA’s fundraising and political organization provided both direct and indirect contributions to help solidify a business-friendly majority in Parker. Candidate Joshua Rivero was the night’s top vote-getter with 4,616 votes, and candidate Anne Barrington came in second with 3,223 votes. With 27 percent of the vote out of seven candidates in the race, Rivero won handedly. However, Anne Barrington was able to clinch the other seat by a much smaller margin, with just a little over 2 percent in front of third-place finisher Nate Matthews. Such a close margin of victory clearly reinforces that the early and late support by the MHC helped to secure her victory and seat on Parker’s City Council.
