BREAKING NEWS – Bedwell ahead by 19 votes, pending recount

In a final count of the District 3 Supervisor election completed Monday afternoon, candidate Drew Bedwell beat out incumbent Bruce Conklin by a mere 19 votes out of 6,907 cast.

However, the possibility of a recount still exists, if Conklin asks and is willing to pay for one.

Bedwell actually picked up three votes in the after-the-election tally, having won by only 16 when the ballots were first counted November 5. Bedwell had 3,463 votes to Conklin’s 3,444.
