I just received an email from one of the Assistant Town Clerks. She has informed me that one of my opponents refused to waive his right to a recount, so it must occur. They're telling me it will most likely be on Tuesday.
I have to admit, I'd probably be pretty stubborn in his case as well. His wife is the president of the PTA for the elementary school in our district, around which pretty much everything political revolves. He should have been a shoe-in, but here comes this punk kid just out of college to squeak in ahead of him.
I was hopeful that he'd get over it and skip the recount—but deep down I knew better.
