2 Fruita council members vying for mayor’s position

Lori Buck



Terry Moss



Two Fruita City Council members are competing to replace Mayor Ken Henry this spring.

Councilwoman Lori Buck, who is in the midst of a second, four-year term, and Councilman Terry Moss, whose own seat is up for election, will vie for the mayoral seat, which Henry is vacating to run for the Mesa County Commission.

There will not be competition for the other three council seats up for grabs in the April 3 election. Councilman Mel Mulder and Councilwoman Stacey Mascarenas are running for re-election, while Joel Kincaid, who owns graphic design and marketing company Merge 2 Media, is the only other person who turned in a petition.

Buck said she’s prepared to serve as mayor, given her six years on council. She said she thinks she can help Fruita retain its small-town atmosphere while also being a progressive community.

Moss said he wants to see Fruita maintain the economic momentum it gained even in the midst of the recession.

“We’re going to grow in Fruita, but we have to grow smart and keep the small-town appeal we’ve all come to enjoy in Fruita,” he said.

Should Buck lose the mayor’s race, she would retain her council seat. Should she win, the council would have to appoint someone to fill her post.

Mulder, Mascarenas and Kincaid would serve four-year terms. Whoever is elected mayor will serve a two-year term.
