Walhalla Recount Completed

At 10 this morning, a lengthy & required recount was started in the ballots cast Tuesday by Walhalla voters. This to determine if Danny Woodward’s narrow victory of the 3rd available council seat shall stand. This morning’s review of provisional & failsafe ballots finished with Woodward’s closest competitor, Keith Pace, picking up 1 vote. The recount ended after 1 hour and it produced no change in the order of finish–meaning Danny Woodward has officially been re-elected to city council. Keith Pace’s 1st try at politics came up 3 votes short.  Pace says he’s disappointed, but not discouraged and says he’ll be back next election, in 2021.
