Recount requested in Lewis Co. race

by Nora Edinger

REGIONAL EDITOR

WESTON -- A recount is scheduled for early June in the Lewis County commissioner race.

Democratic candidate Michael Holden filed Wednesday morning in the county clerk's office for a recount of the Democrat side of the vote.

According to a vote canvass completed Monday, Lewis County school bus driver Holden is three votes behind fellow Democrat Bob Golden, a car dealer. That tally had Golden receiving 1,007 votes and Holden, 1,004 votes.

Sitting county commissioners will conduct the recount at 9 a.m. June 6 at the county courthouse, according to Mary Lou Myers, county clerk.

"The other candidates have been notified but I haven't had a response from any of them yet," Myers said of Golden and Republicans Bob Conley and Bruce Beam.

According to election regulations, other candidates interested in being able to question individual votes during the recount must respond to Myers and post the same $250 bond Holden did, she said.

Although Conley, an incumbent, secured the Republican nomination by a margin of several hundred votes over Beam, either of those candidates could request a part in the recount, as well, Myers added.

Conley will also be able to participate in the recount of the Democratic contest as a commissioner even though he is a candidate in the fall general election, according to state law, Myers said.

Regional editor Nora Edinger can be reached at 626-1403.
