BATH — A recount of votes in the City Council Ward 7 election is scheduled for Thursday morning, Nov. 15.

Cal Stilphen, who trailed winner Leverett Mitchell by six votes on Election Day, said Wednesday that he requested the recount.

“I think I owe it to (his supporters),” Stilphen said. “The vote was close enough that we should take another look just to make sure it was right.”

Mitchell received 232 votes for the one-year term, followed by Stilphen with 226 and Larry Scott with 218. They ran to fill a vacancy left by the Sept. 28 death of Councilor Ruthe Pagurko, who had served two years of a three-year term.

The recount will take place at Bath City Hall at 8:30 a.m.
