Challenger Loses Addison Election by 12 (twelve!!!!) Votes

By
Real Estate Agent with United Real Estate TX #0552717

It's true.  Every vote does count!

Four candidates ran for three seats on the the Addison (Texas) city council in yesterday's election.  The field included three incumbents, Tom Braun, Dennis Kraft, and Roger Mellow, plus Blake Clemens, last year's loser by 29 votes.

The unofficial tabulation (which becomes "official" after being canvassed by the town council on May 20th) looks like this:

Candidate

Precinct 1600 & 1601 (Fire Sta. #2)

Precinct 1602 (Fire Sta. #1)

Blake Clemens

Congratulations to the returning councilmen!  And BRAVO for getting elected without taking donations from any individuals or from any special interest groups.

Should Mr. Clemens choose to run again next year, he may have an easier time as term limits will prevent any of the council members with expiring terms from running for re-election.

Follow-up:  Fourth place finisher Blake Clemens petitioned for a recount.  Assistant City Manager Mario Canizares went to the Dallas County Elections Board for the recount of the municipal election.  After the recount, the results remained unchanged.
