Gov. Bill Ritter appointed one new person and reappointed three others to the state parole board.
Margaret M. Heckenbach of Highlands Ranch will fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Maximino A. Atencio of Pueblo.
Her term will expire July 1, 2010.
Heckenbach served as a Colorado Department of Corrections parole officer from 1994 to 1999. Since 1999, she has been a team leader for the DOC's community parole division, supervising community parole officers.
Three current parole board members were reappointed for a three-year term, ending July 1, 2011. They are: Deborah C. Allen, of Aurora, Celeste M. C de Baca, of Denver, and Leslee V. Waggener, of Centennial.
Allen and Waggener were appointed by Gov. Bill Owens in 2005, while deBaca was appointed last year to fill a vacancy.
All four appointments will require Colorado Senate confirmation.
