Meeker Recount Shows Fenrich Wins 15 Nov 12

A hand-count of ballots Wednesday in the Meeker County 2nd District Commissioners race confirmed Dale Fenrich as the winner and that incumbent Commissioner Dave Gabrielson lost by one vote.

Initial results had both candidates in a tie, with 1,069 votes each. A discrepancy was then discovered in Litchfield Township, which ultimately ended up taking a vote away from Gabrielson and giving the lead to Fenrich.

Gabrielson then asked for a recount, which confirmed Fenrich as the winner with 1,069 votes to Gabrielson’s 1,068 votes.
