David Precourt won with 247 votes. Third-place candidate Margaret Mills didn’t ask for a recount of her 219 votes.
Ward 2 winner Leslie Smith Jr. and opponent Roger Gay also received the same number of votes as they did on Nov. 5 – 309 for Smith and 281 for Gay, who requested the recount.
The two-vote margin between the Ward 7 candidates grew to five votes after the recount.
Newcomer Nathan Johnston won with 180 votes. Incumbent Marston Lovell received 175.
