Former Standish Town Councilor Philip Pomerleau has requested a recount of the June 8 election that he lost by five votes, according to the town clerk.



Councilor Gregory LeClerc defeated Pomerleau for the Area 1 seat 443-438.

The recount is a public proceeding and will take place at 10 a.m. June 29 in the Standish Municipal Building. 

At a special meeting Saturday, the council elected LeClerc as its chairperson. Councilor Sarah Gaba, who is two years into her three-tear term in the council, was elected vice chairperson.

LeClerc and Gaba replace Kimberly Pomerleau and Brian Libby in those positions, respectively.
