By Jeff Hovind
The balloting ended last Tuesday evening but there are still some surprises with the local spring election, including razor-thin margins of victory, a veteran Merrill alderwoman who survived a close race only to vacate the post before she could be seated, and a candidate who was not on the ballot, but won two positions with so few supporters, they could have car pooled to the polls.
In county board races, three contests were decided by less than 10 votes. In district 5, unseating an incumbent in close contest, challenger Garth Swanson defeated incumbent Frank Saal, Jr. by ten votes, 99-89. There was another close race in Di.7, where incumbent Greta Rusch defeated Rob Norton, 105-101. And in the real nail biter of the night, Jolene Callahan fell 2 votes shy of defeating long-time incumbent Graham Rankin, 117-119 in Di. 22. Callahan requested a recount, which was scheduled for Thursday. Results were not available before press time.
