Tucci wins by one vote in Weston recount

From Staff, Wire Reports

WESTON -- Jon Tucci apparently has won the Weston mayoral race by one vote.

Assistant City Clerk Kathy White said a recount of the 1,200 ballots on Tuesday resulted in Tucci's victory, 473 to 472, over incumbent Mayor Terry Cogar, according to The Associated Press. John Williams finished third with 262 votes.

Cogar has 10 days to contest the election. He was not available for comment on Tuesday.

"I want to move the city forward," said mayor-elect Tucci of his future plans. "I want to see new jobs in the area and have more young people get involved."

Cogar had requested the recount after a canvass showed that he had lost to Tucci by four votes.

Becky Swisher, Weston clerk, said in a previous story that 13 of the ballots were challenged. That "final" count was 473 for Tucci, 469 for Cogar and 260 for Williams.

During the canvassing, the number of ballots was compared to both computer tallies and the number of voters' signatures, with one precinct hand-counted.

If Cogar does not contest the vote, Tucci will take office on July 1.
