Judy Laratta

About Judy:

Judy Laratta was elected to the city council in 2014. She has been a resident of Central City for 24 years, and worked in the gaming industry for many of those years. 

Born in Idaho, Judy has had an interesting and colorful career, highlighted by her years as a Playboy Bunny and resident of Hugh Heffner's Chicago mansion. This was followed by almost 50 years of tending bar, cocktailing, real estate brokering, and raising a family.

She moved to Central City with her late husband, James. Her son, Dana, is employed by Century Casino as their marketing manager. She lives on the hillside above Main Street with her two pugs, Samantha and Jojo.

Judy is very proud of her efforts to remove the "Do Not Enter" sign from the entrance to our city.  Rather than first time visitors being directed away from the core of our city, the new direction of traffic is much more welcoming to new and returning visitors.
