Recanvassing of Board of Aldermen Fourth Ward votes Friday, Sept. 13, not only verified Bernie Simons’ victory but also increased his margin by one vote.
After more than two hours, the registrars of voters office, under the guidance of longtime Republican Registrar Peter Pavone, determined that Simons edged the incumbent Jim Capra, 324-318, in the Republican primary Tuesday, Sept. 10. The recanvassing was ordered after unofficial totals showed Simons winning by a mere five votes, with that margin leading to an automatic recanvassing.
