Asheville City Council Results ThreadBy
Good Morning, Hooligans. Marc Hunt and Chris Pelly scored clear victories last night. The 40 vote spread between Jan Davis and Lael Gray means that Gray can request a recount. She says in the AC-T that she’s going to wait for the official canvass of the votes on Nov. 15 to decide whether to seek a recount. Vote totals here.
Mark Cates spent big but went home, and Saul Chase’s effort ended with his sixth place finish.
Assuming Jan Davis has retaken his seat, your Asheville City Council as of Dec. 6 will consist of Cecil Bothwell, Esther Manheimer, Marc Hunt, Terry Bellamy, Jan Davis, Chris Pelly, and yours truly. Looks to me like we’ll have a dynamic group with shifting alliances on various issues.
