Sept. 7, 2018 – Big Cedar Lake, WI – There’s going to be a request for a recount during Monday’s meeting of the Big Cedar Lake PRD.
Petitions from candidates Troy Zagel and Nicole Gonring have been filed. The pair lost in an election at the annual meeting on August 29.
Four candidates were vying for two seats on the Big Cedar Lake PRD.
Each seat carried a 3-year term.
The terms of board members Roger Walsh and Jim McGath had expired. McGath chose not to run again.
Walsh was on the ballot with David Claussen, Nicole Gonring and Troy Zagel.
Nearly an hour after ballots had been cast and votes tabulated the results were read by Walsh.
Walsh read the final numbers which showed he finished first followed by a very close second through fourth place finish.
Only five votes separated three candidates.
Dan Carroll, Operations Manager/Chief of Patrol at Big Cedar Lake PRD, said they counted the votes five times.
There were about 300 people who voted Wednesday night.
Gonring questioned if they counted five times, how come these were the final totals they settled on.
Monday’s meeting begins at 5:45 p.m.
