The Auditor counted all but the last

By On

25 ballots today. In the only close race, Don Hansey has firmly out-polled Sheri Ward. Given how the Herald viewed the big absentee count on Friday afternoon, we can expect them to tell us tomorrow morning that Mark Asmundson is continuing to close the gap with Brett Bonner. Mark’s percentage gained 1/100 of one percent on Brett. Brett now only leads with 30.72% to Mark’s 28.14%. The only number that matters is Mark’s low support. Under 40% is rejection for an incumbent. The voters do not like how he has run the city.
