Recount doesn’t change race results


The results of a recount done last week by the Fulton County Board of Elections confirmed the winners from the official count, according to Melanie Gilders, Board of Elections director.

John M. Pupos and Lynda Arquette remained tied in vote count. Therefore, the winner of the fourth seat on Metamora Council was Pupos, after the tie was broken at the official count by draw of name.

Richard Raab was also confirmed as winner of the second Amboy Township Trustee spot. Recount confirmed a one vote win over Tony Bolger.

The Fulton County Board of Elections will be holding the recount for the Swanton Local School District on Thursday Thursday beginning at 8:30 a.m. and concluding at 3:30 p.m. They will also have to combine recounted results with Lucas County after they complete their recount.

The Swanton subtitute levy trailed by two votes after the official count.
