RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) – A week after Election Day, a winner has been named in the Richmond Hill Council Post 2 race.
Robbie Ward has defeated Dave London in a recount Tuesday morning.
London told News 3 last week that because the tally was so close, he made the recount request.
According to the city clerk, the recount resulted in the same numbers: Ward with 52% of the votes and London with 48%.
“I’m very grateful to the county and the city for indulging my request for a recount,” London said in a Facebook video Tuesday, adding, “I want to congratulate Robbie Ward for running such a successful campaign. I wish him and the whole city council all the best success as they move forward in guiding our city.”
A runoff will be held next month to help further decide what that city council will look like. Steve Scholar and Les Fussel will go head to head on Dec. 3.
